Hi!! I have three girls: McKenna, Autumn, and Kadence. We just found out we are expecting a little boy and are trying to figure out a name. We LOVE the names Silas Reid and Josiah Kade, but I'm afraid Silas might be too popular with Duck Dynasty being so popular now? As for Josiah, I don't like the nickname "Joe". Any thoughts or similar name suggestions?

You could call Josiah "Si", but I really wouldn't worry about Silas becoming too popular because of that show, since it's probably more popular with men. Although I love it lol.

Silas is a great name and I rarely hear it I don't think that show's going to be a trend maker in names, even though I do get caught watching it I never would have associated Silas to the show if you hadn't mentioned it.

I like your choices!

I can't think of anything similar to Josiah that wouldn't be shortened to Joe/Jo, unless you went with the "ah" ending but something else at the start...eg

Micah (poss shorten to Mike)
Zachariah / Zechariah (poss shorten to Zach)
I like Elijah / Noah as previously suggested

You could nn Josiah 'Si'... best of both worlds?

I think Silas is a great name, and I don't think of Duck Dynasty unless I hear the name 'Si'....

just thoughts for ya!

Ps. Kadance is such a beautiful name... it's one of those names thats' been on my 'list' since I was 16.
