A nickname for Silver would be Silva.

I love this name for a boy. I used this name several times for my male characters. It sounds like such a noble name to me.

There's someone in Pokemon named Silver, and I love him.

The metal Silver has a very mystical history and has been, in European folklore, associated with the moon and, therefore, with purity. It is said that Silver is a cure for many ills and that it may be used to ward of vampires Silver bullets, too, are the only things that may kill werewolves in their canine form.

Well, it's better than Golda and Goldie, bwahaha. But it still sounds very bizarre as a name, especially on a female. It sounds like a nickname for a Sylvester, and the ending -er usually sounds more ''natural'' in masculine usage. I like silver jewelry, and I much prefer silver to gold and bronze, but come on now, Silver?! As a name for a person?! Use this on a pet instead. A person with this name might be teased, and even worse, they might have credibility issues.

Sounds more like a name you would find in a fantasy book than a real life name. I like it, but it's just not realistic.

Seems simply silly to me.

The name sounds nice, but the fact that it's a color makes it rather tacky. Plus, many people may mistake it as a feminine name.

Silver is corny as a name. It makes me think of a male stripper.
-- bananarama  4/16/2010
I think this name sounds really cool, for either gender, but I agree with the person who said it isn't very realistic. I'd love to use Silver as a character's name, though.

This is an awesome girls name! WHY IS IT MASCULINE?
-- rooball  3/1/2011
The reason it's listed as masculine is because it is masculine; just take a look at the popularity. If you like this on a girl so much, maybe go for Silvia or Silverlyn? (I apologise to those who hate suffixes on names.) At least something that looks and sounds feminine.
I think it's funny that someone said a while back that they used this name on noble characters, because I sure didn't! I used it for the evil guy and it works just fine on him. (Silv is a possible nickname.)

Well my first name is Silver & I'm a female! I find it rather offensive for you to say it's corny and tacky! I sure as hell don't have issues with my self esteem! Every person I meet thinks I have one of the prettiest names! I don't think it's masculine at all!

I used to think it was a (soft, serene, if silly) girl's name; now I have a (quick-tempered, devious, male) friend called Silver. I will never forget our awkward introduction.

Me: (looking around) "So, who're your cousins?"
Other Friend: "[other cousin's name] and Silver [surname]. Well - I see [other cousin's name]'s car, anyway."
Silver: (walking up behind me, I didn't know at the time)
Me: "Silver?! Wow - um - that's a pretty name. Where is she?"
Silver: (stops, angry) "HE'S here!"

As much as I like Sil, it saves a LOT of embarrassment and hassle if you give a kid a name that's obviously masculine or obviously feminine. Maybe Silver could be a nickname for Sylvester.

Not really a name... unless he's a statue...
-- Hushpuppy  8/18/2014
It appeared on the U.S. popularity chart in 1896... wonder if that had something to do with the gold vs. Silver currency debate.

Silver St. Cloud, Gotham socialite and former love interest of Bruce Wayne in the DC universe.

Well, personally my name is Silvester and my nickname is Silver. I guess it's just because of the "Sil" or "Syl" and the -er.
-- SilverSp00n  2/11/2017
A very wonderful modern name. Although, please please please, don't name a male this! It is very feminine. Also Sylver is a much better variant.
