    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/Euan. Graham. John (Johnny). Dean. Wesley (Wes). Reid. Grady. Jasper. Samuel (Sam). Gus. Miles/Milo.

    Sylvie. Gwyneth (Gwen). Bonnie. Elise. Rosanna (Zanna). Eve. Margot. Iris. Esme. Annemarie (Marie). Greta. Phoebe (Bee). Lucy (Lulu).

    Sylvia and Sylvie

    I just ran across this thread by accident! My daughter's name is Sylvia. We call her Sylvie at home, and I was quite surprised to find her teachers and friends at school know her as Sylvia. Having two choices for different occasions is her prerogative. Her middle name is Pearl! I love to dream of the President of the USA as Sylvia Pearl, or maybe a Sylvie working for the Peace Corp. in Africa.
    Either way, a unique and beautiful name.
    Cheers!
