Sylvana: Meaning and Usage?
We're considering adding Sylvana to our short list of girl names.
Behind the Name has such little information on the name and its meaning and usage. Does anyone here have information on its meaning or origin? I had hoped it was related to or derived from Sylvester, since we like the meaning ("of the forest" according to Behind the Name) of this name.
Also, any insight into why the name has never charted in the top 1000? Its lack of popularity is surprising to me, especially since I went to grade school with Sylvana, my sister had a college friend Sylvana and my husband worked with a Silvana.
General feedback on the name is welcome too!
