My grandma had a cat called that. I like it.

"That's an evil baby"

Sorry.

DS has a friend called Silas. I like it.

Hollyoaks serial killer. Sorry.

I love it! Really wanted to use it but my husband thinks it sounds too much like a baddie.

I completely love it, despite bad memories of Silas Marner at school.

Have never seen Hollyoaks.

I quite like it. I don't watch holloaks but was there a villain in something else called Silas? Was it that superhero thing with Haydn Pannetiere?

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 15-Nov-16 19:27:05

Oh no sorry that was Sylar according to google!

Not keen. They're always mean as characters (although Silas Marner redeemed himself) but the Dan Brown one didn't. And that one I've not heard of up thread sounds mean too.

So that'd be a no from me. (And that's if I've remembered properly!)

Hollyoaks serial killer!

A smallish relative of mine is called Silas. I love it, he suits it and he is lovely! Sal for short.

It sounds a bit rural. Like a Somerset farmer in the 1700s.

Sophronia Tue 15-Nov-16 21:53:02

I like it.

soundsystem Tue 15-Nov-16 21:54:07

I like it.

BeastofCraggyIsland Tue 15-Nov-16 22:04:51

It's quite a nice name but I agree with the villain thing; the murderous, self-flagellating albino monk in The Da Vinci Code is called Silas. What about Seth?

BratFarrarsPony Tue 15-Nov-16 22:07:03

it doesnt have a good association to be honest...
What about Cyrus?

Shellybobbles82 Tue 15-Nov-16 23:20:43

I like it x

Really like it. Would have been on our list if DD had been a boy. As would Cyrus, mentioned by pp.
