    Silvia is a nice name, and doesn't really sound old lady like to me. Personally I think it is one of the best names for a child, teen, adult, and older adult. Suits all perfectly fine. Sylvie is also a possible nn. Some middle suggestions:
    Leanne
    Brit
    Athena
    Shealah
    Teenberry, name loving girl.

    Not old womanly at all. I prefer the traditional spelling but Silvia is nice too. Like people said, names like Eleanor and Hazel are in style so little Silvia won't stick out like a sore thumb.

    I LOVE Silvia, I think it's gorgeous. And personally I like the Silvia spelling, Sylvia to me feels a little more dated for some reason....

    I actually think Silvia/Sylvia (I prefer the y spelling) is a rather frilly/girly and timeless name. All of which remind someone of an old lady they know because, it was as awesome then as it is now.
    I'd probably pair it with a longer, very solid name for a middle to give the whole thing a nice balance.
    I like Sylvia Madeleine, Sylvia Eleanor and Sylvia Justine.

    It is so NOT an old lady name. I'm sure once your family meets the baby Sylvia they'll realize that.
