Silas with an S- last name?

I love the name Silas, but our last name begins with an S. Too much? Does the second S get lost?

My husband likes Jeremiah, and 2y/o insists on Gideon. Middle name we’re leaning toward is Wilder. Big brother is Holden.

Other suggestions are welcome!

[name_m]Silas[/name_m] is delightful! I think it sounds really really cool with an S last name. I don’t mind that the two blend together a bit. Sounds very cool!!!

Also… [name_m]Silas[/name_m] and [name_u]Holden[/name_u] together!? Too perfect!!!

I do think [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_u]Stacy[/name_u] is kind of hard to say, but you (and he) would get used to pausing between the two names.

Other suggestions that seem like they would go with [name_u]Holden[/name_u]:


Unfortunately I do think [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_u]Stacy[/name_u] is too much. I think since the last name not only starts with S but also has the S sound in the middle, and since [name_m]Silas[/name_m] both starts and ends with S, it’s definitely very hissy overall. I’m partial to [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] and I think [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] [name_u]Wilder[/name_u] [name_u]Stacy[/name_u] works really well together!

I love how [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_u]Stacy[/name_u] sounds! I actually quite enjoy when names feel like they flow into together like that. It doesn’t seem too much.

I like alliteration in the right combo, but as others have said I think [name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_u]Stacy[/name_u] is just too much due to the S sound in the middle of your surname too. It’s not totally unusable, but I’d personally keep looking.

I love [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] or even [name_u]Wilder[/name_u] as a first name for you! :evergreen_tree:

How about…


[name_m]Silas[/name_m] [name_u]Stacy[/name_u] sounds okay to me - I’ve heard more rhymey/tongue-twistery ones before

A few suggestions that came to mind:


[name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_m]Silas[/name_m] and [name_u]Wilder[/name_u]. Though I do agree, seems a bit too much, for me personally. [name_u]Love[/name_u] someone else’s suggestion of [name_u]Shiloh[/name_u] though. And I don’t think it would be too much for that one!
