i'm surprised no one mentioned that Silas is the name of the oldest son on the tv show Weeds.
I love the name. It was my top pick for a while, but it sounds awkward with my last name.
edit..doh! i just noticed milkcake referenced Weeds 2 posts up. I don't think it will become too popular....i love the show, but i don't know many others who watch it. Plus, it's not on basic cable.
Huge Weeds fan here. Although I got hooked late in the game. A few weeks ago, while my daughter was at her dad's for Spring Break and my SO was working out of town. I watched seasons 1-5 straight through. That's the best way to watch a series like that IMO. Anyway, season 6 isn't on Netflix instant yet, so I'm stuck. :( I found the first couple episodes on YouTube, but then they started blocking them. :(
