It is my grandmother's name and I think it's one of the most beautiful names I've ever seen! My grandma was very beautiful when she was young.

Sylvia Plath (October 27, 1932 – February 11, 1963) was an American poet, novelist, short story writer, and essayist. Most famous as a poet, Plath is also known for The Bell Jar, her semi-autobiographical novel detailing her struggle with clinical depression, specifically bipolar disorder. Plath and Anne Sexton are credited with advancing the genre of confessional poetry that Robert Lowell and W.D. Snodgrass initiated. Since her suicide, Sylvia Plath has risen to iconic status. While married to Ted Hughes, her husband wrote a poem 'Wind', this poem was seen to have shown the storminess of their relationship and how distant they were with one another. Sylvia Plath's suicide was said to have been caused by the fact that Ted Hughes had separated from her in the prior year.

This is not one of my favorite names. It seems too old fashioned.

I think Silvia is a wonderful name for anyone looking to use a classic name for their children. There's really no such thing as a name that is 'too old fashioned' in my opinion. Today, names seem very meaningless and pointless with everyone trying to make them as 'unique' as they possibly can, even going so far as to misspell them chosen name when they can just use a wonderful name that isn't grotesque.

I love the spelling of Silvia VS. Sylvia. This name seems very youthful when spelled this way, I'd highly recommend this very fine name for anyone.

Silvia sounds so sleek and slender to me. It's a beautiful, silvery name.

Mexican actress Silvia Navarro also bears this name. She's famous for playing in Mexican soap operas like Perla or Cuenda Seas Mía.

I think it's unfortunate that Silvia/Sylvia has been sort of relegated to "old-fashioned" status, since it has such a lovely sound. If people would have the guts to use it, it wouldn't have such an "old woman" image along with it. I also happen to prefer Silvia to Sylvia, since Silvia reminds me of silver.

I have never heard this, but it is beautiful! I really like it!

I don't really like the sound of this name, but I did suggest to my friend to name her cat Silvia because the cat was grey and white so she looked silver. Something about the "ill" sound in this name puts me off about it.
Zinha  5/9/2012
Such a delectable name with this spelling! I also like Sylvia but find the Silvia spelling almost irresistible - it has such a light and silvery feel!
I love the combo Silvia Juliet - both from Shakespeare.

At first I thought my name was kind of simple, but then I found out the meaning of my name Silvia and all the stories my name is being used on. I love my name.

I would see a very genteel, mature, young lady bearing this name, who would bring light and hope to everyone around her (And good cooking to!)

My name is Silvia and I love it. I'm kind of old fashioned myself, I'd much rather have lived in different times. And I'm also glad it's not so popular anymore. Everyone is called Nicole and Aya and names like that nowadays in my country.
