In Italy Silvana was typical of the 1920s. It was the 6th most popular name in Rome in 1921, the 2nd (behind Maria) in 1926, the 7th in 1931. Today it sounds old-fashioned.

Well, my name is Silvana. I think my name's nice, it's just really annoying when people call me Sylvania or Silvagnes lol. They can come up with the most annoying names but I still love 'em! I like it because it's very unique! It just sucks when helping people on how to pronounce it. I didn't even know how to say it when I was younger lol.

Silvana comes from the Latin "silva" that means "forest" and the suffix "ana", that indicates origin and can be translated as "that comes from/ that was born in".

Therefore, Silvana means "The one that comes from the forest" or "The one that was born in the forest".

It's a nymph's name =)
