What comes to mind when you hear the name Sylvi?
([name]Do[/name] you like the name, and what kind of girl do you picture – ie: looks, nationality, behavior, whatever!)
Does it feel “complete” enough as a name to stand on its own (I would have to really sell my husband on the name [name]Sylvia[/name] nn Sylvi/[name]Sylvie[/name]).
Also, does it bug you to see it spelled without the ‘e’ on the end ([name]Sylvie[/name])? The name Sylvi is in our family tree spelled this way, so I’d like to stay true to that, but wouldn’t necessarily have to.
Lastly, would Sylvi “go” with sisters [name]Greta[/name] and [name]Elsa[/name]? We have chosen Scandinavian/[name]German[/name] names thus far, and while I do have a distant family member (Swedish) named Sylvi, my husband thinks the name sounds way more Spanish, Italian or French than anything else. Which in itself isn’t a big deal, but I just wouldn’t want the name sticking out like a sore thumb next to [name]Greta[/name] and [name]Elsa[/name].
