    Any help is great

    I posted a previous comment on this board and did not get much response so forget my criteria and just list what you think goes with my son's name.. Silas Rowan James. Silas and James are family names Rowan we liked the origin & meaning "little red head" (he is actually a red head, LOL!) Most likely my other children will be red heads too so something that won't make them seem really weird but still original. Thanks!

    Hmmm... Silas is a very distinctive Biblical name, one I haven't heard very often. It also sounds very "colonial" to my ear. So my suggestions will also be along the same vein.

    Ezra
    Jonah/ Jonas (although the "as" ending might be too similar to Silas)
    Levi
    Jedediah
    Judah
    Calvin
    Gideon

    The only baby Silas that I know has siblings named Elijah, Caleb and Esther.

    Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

    Your original criteria don't seem so daunting if you don't try to fulfill all of them at once.
