It is my own name. It's a quite popular italian name, but because I live in Germany and Switzerland, people there find it still quite uncommon. I often get very positive reactions for my name.
I grew up with a childhood friend named Silvana and ended up naming my daughter Silvana. It is not common in the States but I sill adore the name. I am under the impression it is an old Italian name that means woman of the forest.
