Need a middle name for Silas

We've pretty much decided on our son's first name, Silas. The problem is, we don't have any middle names picked out. I like Owen but our last name starts with a B and I'm not going to have an SOB. I didn't put this in polls because I don't have any options! Last name starts with Brand- and is four syllables, very German. I don't like any of the very popular names, we like more traditional and/or very unique but not bizarre.

  • with the unusualness of Silas and the long, German last name, I'd go with something simple.

    James, Robert, Matthew...

  • I agree with something simple and short. Silas is unique and a 4 syllable last name I would say something like Lee, James, Scott, Ray..something short.

  • From prior posters I like Daniel, James and Lee best. My first thought was Edward, but I have no idea why! I also like the idea of using a family name for the middle, unless you have other children that did not get family names.
