Really contemplating 'Silver' for DC3, not sure of spelling - Silver, Sylva or Silva?

Is it pretty and unusual or just weird and therefore setting DD up for lifetime of teasing/judgement?

If you must use it, at least spell it properly. don't use it though

I know a boy called Silver, cute for a child, not sure if it works for an adult, prefer Sylvie or Sylvia for a girl.

ThoughtfulPenny Sat 26-Dec-15 00:06:25

It's awful. But agree with pp if you do use it, definitely spell it properly!

I think Silvana is an Italian name... dunno about Silva.

exWifebeginsat40 Sat 26-Dec-15 00:14:06

it's Portuguese isn't it? a surname I mean - da Silva?

Silvana is a Spanish name. Or use Sylvie / Sylvia.

Silver would make me want to say "High-ho Silver!" but that is a pretty old reference!

Lucy90 Sat 26-Dec-15 09:05:44

How about Sylvia?

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 26-Dec-15 09:07:30

Reminds me of Sliver from 90210.
Not my type if name but I don't dislike it.

LettuceLaughton Sat 26-Dec-15 09:26:29

Sylvia / Sylvia / Silvana or somesuch with the nn Silver would be rather nice.
Silver on its own might be a bit limiting for a person. In any case the cre8tiv spellings are just dreadful.

Lifetime of piss taking I'm afraid

MamaLazarou Sat 26-Dec-15 09:39:04

I like Silver a lot.

ScarlettDarling Sat 26-Dec-15 09:42:03

We know a Sylvie which I think is lovely, but Silver is just odd.

Can't say I really get the appeal of having a colour for a name.

What about-


Various names meaning gold and silver?

Doublebubblebubble Sat 26-Dec-15 09:45:10

I'm not keen first thing I thought of was Silverfish, dont know why if you like it though I agree with pp spell it properly x

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 26-Dec-15 09:47:06

I'm not keen and would definitely look in to names which mean silver, as suggested by a pp.

Sylviane - French version? could be shortened to various Silv- things

MizK Sat 26-Dec-15 09:48:34

If you like it, use it! I would probably spell it Silver as that's what everybody will assume when you say it.

It isn't my favourite but it is a pretty word and I have no idea why anyone would tease or judge her about it?

Oysterbabe Sat 26-Dec-15 09:59:36

I think it's weird rather than pretty.
Agree with others, if you do it spell it correctly.

Hi ho...

CandlesAreBurning Sat 26-Dec-15 10:13:50

Just use it, at spelt silver or Silva. Welsh has plenty of names for colours, and if you're a welsh speaker, you are just calling the child a colour, so it's all good

HackerFucker22 Sat 26-Dec-15 12:28:24

Not a fan, but if you use it spell it properly.

We have Spanish relatives through marriage and Da Silva is their family name.

Strokethefurrywall Sat 26-Dec-15 12:43:26

I know an adult Silva - shes of Armenian descent. It's really pretty and she's not had a lifetime of piss taking either...
