Caelum vs. Silas vs. ?

I am due with my son who’s my first in a short 7 weeks and I can’t make up my mind on which name! My name is Carina, I was named after the constellation, I thought it would be cool to name my son after one as well and I fell in love with Caelum. Problem is, I think it looks "trendy" in a bad way and it seems like a younger choice. Am I overthinking it? It is the correct spelling and I do love the connection. If not, I am not sure of any other constellation names, I can’t use Leo. So I found Silas which is close in sound to Caelum. I don’t know where to go from here and I just want the perfect name prepared for when I get to greet my little man. Thanks, Carina

Callum is similar and best to be honest...From your two choices Caelum is better... Silas is weird and unappealing

Silas is starting to be popular. Use Caelum!

Agree with previous poster. Go with your heart and don’t over-think it. :-)

Is Callum pronounced Cal-lum? If so, I am not really a fan of Cal.
Thank you for the confidence in Caelum! It’s official, next to tackle a middle name. Grandparents are Charles and Alfred. I also like Roarke and Arden. I appreciate all the help.

Caelum is uneducated looking. Of the two, Silas is light years better! Calum (with one L) I believe is said the same as "Caelum" whereas Callum (with two L’s) is Cal-lum
