'Sil' comes from the root 'silima' meaning 'shine' (especially white or silver light).

Silver does not have a meaning in Quenya.

Sindarin:
Orithil - Day of the moon
Cýron - New moon
Ithil - "moon"
Ithildin - silver-coloured substance mirrors only starlight & moonlight
Celeb (KELEB) - noun; "silver"
Celebrin (KELEB-reen) - "like silver"
Celebrían (kele-BREE-an) - "silver queen"

Quenya:
Silmariën (seel-MAR-ree-en)
Tinwë (TEEN-way) - "sparkle"
Tingilindë (teen-gee-LEEN-day) - "twinkling star"
Elen (ELEN) - noun; "star"
Telpë (TEL-pay) - "silver"
Ilsa (EEL-sa) - "silver" (mystic name)
Nillë / Ngillë (NEE-lay?) - "silver glint"
Silmë (SEEL-may) - "silver"? "light of Silpion"/"starlight"?
