"Someday when I have children, if I have girl, her name will be Silvia. Silvi for short. I like this name because it sounds pretty and pretty serious, it's relatively uncommon and has a cute nickname for when you're little. It also sounds and looks simmilar to my own name, Olivia." Jul. 15, 2011:

"My Aunt's name is Silvia. I love this name. We use the "i" spelling instead of the "y" because my family is Cuban and that is the Spanish spelling." Apr. 29, 2008:
"My name is Silvia and I'm from Italy, a country where this name is quite popular but not spoiled. In America people spell it as Sylvia but I don't mind it because it's an other side of me :D My relatives call me Silvietta (you pronounce it like Silviecta) which in Italian is "little Silvia".
Maybe not many people know that there's a myth about Rome's fundation. The story says that Silvia had 2 babies (Romolo and Remo) from the god of war. When she abandoned them on the Tiber, a female wolf saved and raised them. As grownups they funded the city of Rome." Oct. 14, 2007:
"this is my name. there are many people, especially foreign people, who spell it wrong. my name is supposed to be written as Sılvia. however most people pu a y instead of an i and don't even put an accent.
I do not know many people with the same name as mine..which in some ways make me feel unique. however 'this also makes me not like my name because there are not many people with it! Some people say they like it because it is very different, but i don't like it for exactly the same reason!" Apr. 5, 2007:
