I have posted a few times on here, but not since my miscarriage last fall. I'm back again with some good news! I'm pregnant again, but this time with TWINS!
We have found out that we are having 1 boy, but we don't know the other ones gender yet. We have a solid boy/girl name combo that I think we're set on.
Silas and Sylvia
We hadn't planned on using same initials or having any theme, but these two have just come together this way and we love them. We also realize that the names both have the same or similar root, which we think is kind of neat without being totally obvious to the average ear.
So I come here today because...what if we end up with 2 boys? we really like the name Abram for potential baby boy #2. In fact, I think we're pretty set on that as well, but I'd love to get any other ideas of a good combo with Silas in case something else comes up that we also really like. We just aren't as solid on this name as Silas.
Here's some examples of other names that we've contemplated and decided not to use for various reasons, to give yoh a good idea on what we're looking for.
Also, older brother's name is Riley (a family name).

Congratulations! How exciting
Abram and Silas are truly wonderful together - I absolutely love it! As for other suggestions, WDYT of:
Silas and Calvin
Silas and August
Silas and Hugo
Silas and Tristan
Silas and Leo
Silas and Oscar
Separately, I really like both Sylvia and Silas, but they do sound very similar to each other. Have you considered any other girls' names? E.g.:
Silas [middle] and Phoebe Sylvia
Silas [middle] and Fiona Sylvia
Silas [middle] and Vivienne Sylvia
Silas [middle] and Juliet Sylvia
Silas [middle] and Violet Sylvia
Silas [middle] and Emmeline Sylvia

Thanks for the suggestions...I really do love Silas and Abram! Some of the other suggestions are great too. I love Calvin, Atlas, Harrison, Thaddeus, Jude, and August, but most have been vetoed. I'm guessing Silas and Abram will be it.
As for Silas and Sylvia. At first I was opposed to the two of them together thinking they were too similar, but the more I said them out loud together, I actually thought that they might be more similar in looks than actual sound...other than of course the S beginning. Sylvia is non-negotiable as it is a very important family name. Silas could be negotiable, we just love it so much. Sylvia would go by Sylvie.
Why does it have to be so hard. Lol
Any thoughts on other great combos with Sylvia?
