Meaning:Of the forest; woods
Sylva is an earthy respelling of Sylvia, meaning "of the forest" or "woods" in Latin. With such a nature-loving name, your little sprout will always be up for an adventure in the great outdoors. Most at home with their boots in the mud, they'll bring out your wild side and keep your inner child alive. A little hint—they may also come with a throng of woodland creatures, so prepare for some unconventional family pets. If Sylva doesn't hit the right tone, try Sylvia, Sylvana, or Sylvan.
