We just found out we were having a boy last week, and though we had a list of girl names we loved we are having a much harder time settling on a boy name. The front runner right now is [name]Silas[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]. My concern is that with my husband’s last name–[name]Mills[/name]–[name]Silas[/name] becomes a less sophisticated name. [name]Silas[/name] is a family name, and we would like to use the initials [name]SAM[/name], but now that I have said the name so many times I feel like I can’t hear what it sounds like to others. Does [name]Silas[/name] [name]Mills[/name] have a “backward” sound to it, or could you imagine him being an educated, worldly man (things that, of course, I would like for my son)?
