Thanks everyone! I did think of using Lincoln Silas, which I like together, but there is something about Lincoln that doesn't feel right. Maybe it's because it's been on our list since baby #1 and we've already rejected it twice. Also, I don't love that there are so many associations (president, car model, two towns relatively close to us)... Another issue I have with it is the spelling, I dislike the second L and I'm not a fan of changing a classic spelling. I like the nicknames though (Linc or Cole).
I'm really leaning toward Silas, but it just seems to be the odd man out next to my other boys. And, hubby prefers Lincoln so I may have trouble getting him to agree to Silas. I thought about Silas Lincoln, but not sure it flows well? Also, are there any other nickname ideas other than Si/Sy/Sly??

That is so crazy -- Corbin and Griffin were my top two favorite names when I was pregnant with my son! (Of course, my hubby vetoed them!) Lucky you to get to use those awesome names! I actually love both Lincoln and Silas, too. I would be inclined to say go with Silas -- I just like it a little better. I agree with the previous poster who said that too much weight is given to sibling names. After all, that only matters during childhood. Once they are adults, they are pretty much on their own. No one comes around asking me what my siblings names are or trying to decide if they go together or not.Mom to Alexander Patrick (9), Madelyn Esther (7), and Genevieve Susan (2). Expecting Theodore James in February 2014!
Baby #4 will be the last for us, so I am kind of sad to be saying goodbye to the beloved names I will now never use! At least I can still come here to encourage others to use them!
