    I prefer Silas a lot more. Cyrus just makes me think of an old man, whereas I think Silas is more upbeat and goes a lot better with Rowan.

    Silas is softer and seems like an artistic kid's name.

    Cyrus is a bit more rough and tumble and seems like an athletic kid's name.

    However, I like them both and think they are smart choices.

    I like them both, with Cyrus holding a slight edge for me. I do know a little boy named Silas, and lots of people who first meet him think his name is Cyrus.

    Both are great names of depth and history. I prefer the softer Silas to the stronger Cyrus and I blaim Miley Cyrus and her father Billy Ray for that difference! My image of Silas is of a spunky, curious, outdoorsy with a mischievous glint in his eye. Cyrus is more serious, studious and has strong leadership qualities.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I guess I do like Silas better in general...but Cyrus has such a cool history and special vibe to it. Miley/Billy Ray does put a damper on it slightly, but I don't think it's that big of a deal. And they both have the awesome nickname Cy (Si?)
