    So, I have somewhat decided on the name
    Silas Carl
    Silas is just a name I love and Carl is a long time family name.
    What do ya'll think about Silas, I love the fact that it is not a popular name, plus it sounds sweet but strong....FIL seems to think people will call him Si, pronounced any of you forsee that?

    DH is having a tough time coming up with a name, we know it will be something Henry, another family name.....he has thought of,
    Cole Henry, which I think Cole is a popular name OR
    Isaac Henry, which I really like
    I appreciate all honesty here, don't hold back on account of feelings........TIA!!!

    I like Silas Carl. You cant predict what kids will do to one anothers names although I really dont see it being done. If you want your family to call him Silas then make it plain you want him called Silas. I had to put my foot down with my FIL when we told him we were naming our first Russell. He thought Rusty would be SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!> Like over my dead body.I said you either call him Russ or Russell and I never heard Rusty from anyone again.

    As for---------- Henry:
    Cole is quite popular right now.

    I do like Isaac Henry.

    Other options:

    Alexander Henry ( call him ALex or Zander)
    Colton Henry ( kinda similar to Cole but not so popular)
    Liam Henry
    Micah Henry
    Nicholas Henry
    Noah Henry
    Oliver Henry
    Samuel Henry
    Preston Henry
    Jackson Henry
    Jason Henry

    I guess my favorites would be Isaac, Liam, Oliver or Samuel.

    I like Silas Carl and Issac Henry- very cute! I think people will call Silas "Si", but probablly not enought to make it his nickname.

    I went to high school with a guy named Silas. He is the only one I have ever heard of with that name. We NEVER called him Si. I think it is a strong, yet sensitive man that has a name like that. The guy I went to school with was an amazing artist.

    I like Isaac Henry as a companion name with Silas Carl.
