Zilvia is an earthy name for baby girls that inspires resilience. Possibly Italian and Portuguese, it's a respelling of Latin Silvia, meaning "woods," "forest," or "spirit of the wood." Variants of Silvia pay tribute to a wood-nymph in Greek mythology who served under the goddess Artemis, as well as the Roman deity Silvanus. Beyond myth, the name is associated with American poet and novelist Sylvia Plath and Christian Saint Silvia, patroness of pregnant women. Baby Zilvia will seek a tranquil life and weather any storm with the strength of a mighty oak!
