    Jameson- I really love it, but I don't like James as a nn, so I couldn't use it myself
    Sebastian- I'm in love with my name, it's a very possible contender for a child in about 10-15 years
    Samuel- too dated for me
    Xander- I love it, and it's a great nn for Alexander
    Liam- a bit common now, I know too many Liam's to use it
    Archer- this has been growing on me....I like it
    Carter- love it, but it's a bit common at the moment
    Walter- waaaayyy too dated
    Jacob- too common, but it seems to be getting less and less common, so it could be usable in 5-10 years
    Dominic- love it, not many Dominic's around
    Finnegan- see Dominic lol
    Barnaby- too old and dated, way too clunky for a child
    Paul- too dated
    Henry- again, too dated
    Oliver- I just don't like this one

    Hi there Em! Hope I can be of some help while you recreate your new list!

    Jameson - solid, masculine name
    Sebastian - love its spunk and sound
    Samuel - okay
    Xander - slightly trashy IMO (sorry!)
    Liam - too nicknamey and popular for me
    Archer - cute, I love it
    Carter - cute, popular though
    Walter - eh, a little dated
    Jacob - way too popular, I find it boring because it's been so overused
    Dominic - has to be my favorite of them all!
    Finnegan - okay
    Barnaby - sorry, I'm another Barnaby hater, I think its sound is a bit off-putting
    Paul - dated
    Henry - sweet, strong
    Oliver - not exactly my cup of tea

    Jameson Elijah nn Jem - nice combo although Elijah isn't my taste
    Walter Sebastian - meh
    Samuel George - great combo
    Xander Nathaniel - love Nathaniel, firmly dislike Xander
    Archer Cohen - okay combo, good flow
    Carter James - James is a bit 'filler' to me
    Jacob Mason - flow isn't 100%
    Dominic Wolf - Wolf? No, sorry.
    Finnegan Peter - love this
    Barnaby Paul - don't love this
    Paul Tristan - flow isn't the best
    Henry Alton - super cute!!
    Oliver Graham - I really like it

    Jameson - what's wrong with James? As someone not a fan of surnames I just can't make myself like this. Also, I can only think of the whiskey
    Sebastian - I quite like Sebastian but really dislike Seb and that seems like an inevitable nn
    Samuel - love it, it's a great classic. I'm not a fan of Sam though so I could never use Samuel
    Xander - this is by far my favourite nn for Alexander but I'm not sure about it on it's own
    Liam - good name
    Archer - what if he tries archery and sucks at it? I don't like surname names or occupation names. It has quite a nice sound though
    Carter - see Archer
    Walter - I'm not really a fan. I can see kids nicknaming Walter Wally - Where's Wally?, 'you're a wally'...
    Jacob - great classic name, but like Samuel I could never use because I don't like Jake
    Dominic - everybody seems to love Dominic at the moment but I don't see the appeal, I just don't really like the sound
    Finnegan - I like Finn as a nn but I can only see Finnegan as a surname
    Barnaby - this is a guilty pleasure of mine! I love it, but I'm not sure I can see it working on an actual person
    Paul - this name has a lot of history but it is ruined for me by a personal association
    Henry - very popular in this country I think but it always sounded a bit strange to me, I can only think of Henry the Hoover
    Oliver - nice name

    Possible Combos:
    Jameson Elijah nn Jem - my opinions of Jameson aside, I think this combo flows well and I really like Elijah. I also love nn Jem for James, I have also heard Jam which I thought was quite cool
    Walter Sebastian - I prefer Sebastian Walter
    Samuel George - good classic combo
    Xander Nathaniel - It doesn't sound quite right, maybe Nathaniel Alexander?
    Archer Cohen - not a fan of either name but they sound ok together
    Carter James - I just really don't like Carter, Elijah James? Samuel James?
    Jacob Mason - it kind of sounds like first name, last name. I'm not a fan of Mason. Jacob Oliver?
    Dominic Wolf - Wolf is great as a middle name but I'm not sure if it quite works here. Nathaniel Wolf? Barnaby Wolf?
    Finnegan Peter - I want to say Finnegan, Peter Finnegan. I just can't like Finnegan as a first name
    Barnaby Paul - I quite like these together, Barnaby makes Paul seem more exciting
    Paul Tristan - I prefer Tristan Paul
    Henry Alton - this actually works really well
    Oliver Graham - Graham is pretty dated but in the middle it works well with Oliver

    I don't mind most of the names on your list. But a few points I would add… look at the meanings too not just how they sound. Names like Jameson, don't really make sense unless their Dad's name is James. And I would also give some thought to the professions and what they represent behind some of the names ( not bad or good, but might help you narrow it down). I imagine Archer being focussed and true to his aims…righteous perhaps given the link between the word sin and archery. But carter… is just someone who hauls carts… i think? Not as fussed on that. You have a few hebrew names listed too, so I would suggest reading the meanings of them too. Hebrew names have such lovely meanings for the most part.
