    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).
    Mom to Nora Cathleen.

    Current favorites:
    Declan (Decs/Dex). Miles (Milo). Dean. Euan. Dexter (Dex). John (Johnny). Max. Finn. Leo. Reed.

    Gwyneth (Gwen). Elise. Bronwen (Bonnie). Piper. Josephine (Josie). Iris. Margot. Sylvie. Beatrix (Bea). Mary.
