Gender: F Meaning of Sylvie: "from the forest" Origin of Sylvie: French variation of Latin Sylvia

Although Sylvia seems to be having somewhat of a revival among trendsetting babynamers, we'd still opt for the even gentler and more unusual Sylvie. It feels exotic without being unfamiliar and has a cosmopolitan, international air.

Jason Bateman chose it as the middle name of his daughter Maple. In one of Lewis Carroll's lesser known novels, Sylvie and Bruno, Lady Sylvie is the princess of Fairyland.
