NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Latin “silva > Silvānus”, meaning “wood, woodland, forest, wild, sylvan, who lives or comes from the woods, (figuratively) abundance, heap, a lot, abundant material”. Silvanus was a Roman tutelary deity of woods and fields. As protector of forests (Sylvestris Deus), he especially presided over plantations and delighted in trees growing wild. Silvanus shares the same etymology of the names Silvio, Silvia, Silverio, and Sylvester.
