    I much prefer Sylvie to Sylvia, but it is really a matter of taste. Sylvie is a name in its own right (as others have pointed out). Sylvie might sound nicknamey to some people, but it feels perfectly acceptable as a fn IMO. As someone else pointed out, Sylvie is what Sophie is to Sophia. I really like it.

    Sylvie is one of my favorite girl names. I am not one to be a fan of nicknames, either. Sylvie, as others have said, is the French version of Sylvia. To me, French culture oozes sophistication so I view Sylvie as a perfectly acceptable, complete first name. I personally feel Sylvia is a little too stuffy and old, but Sylvie is fresh while maintaining class. I really like Sylvie paired with a middle name that ends in an 'a.' I have the combination of Sylvie Johanna on my short list (Johanna honors family).
    Mama to Nora.

    Current favorites:
    Declan (Dex). Griffin (Finn). Ewan. Graham. August (Gus). Colin. Ian. Wesley (Wes). Cyrus. Leland (Lee). Rufus.

    Gwyneth (Gwen). Elise. Bronwen (Bonnie). Zoe. Edith (Edie). Piper. Ivy. Josephine (Josie). Margot. Carys. Sylvie. Eve. Iris. Esme. Phoebe (Bee). Kaia.
