4 weeks and no name - what do people think of Silas?
Help! I am due in 4 weeks and my husband and I are having a terrible time agreeing on the name of our second boy. He likes traditional colonial american names and I am partial to cowboy names (our first son is named Jasper). Given those tastes it would seem we would have a lot of overlap in the names we like but we don't! We originally thought we woud go with Eli or some lengthening of that but we now know about 6 kids under 3 with that name and don't want the name to be that popular. We almost decided on Silas but a few off handed comments from friends has convinced my husband that this is a sinister or evil sounding name. So, two questions, do people feel that Silas is a "dark" or sinister sounding name? Second, which of these options seems good? we are going with the middle name Roy, which is a family name, and his last name will be Scott.
