ORIGIN AND HISTORY

The boy’s name Silvio is most commonly considered an Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese form of the Latin name Silvius, derived from the feminine Silvia from silva “wood” “forest.” It could also be:

  • from the Latin name Silvanus, the name of the Roman god of uncultivated land [1]
  • a form of Silas, which is from the Greek name Silvanus “forest”
  • in Italian, it can mean “forest dweller” “silver”
  • from Latin, meaning “belonging to the forest” “silver.”

POPULARITY

Silvio was a popular name in the early 1900s. It first appeared on the Social Security Administration’s list of most popular names in 1908, ranking 1017. It reached its height of popularity at 692 in 1917, but disappeared from the list after 1930, when it came in at 918. [1]


FACTS

  • According to legend, the mother of Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome, was Rhea Silvia. She raised her twins in Alba Longa (see Alba), where several kings bore the name Silvius. [1]
  • In Greek mythology, Silvanus (from which Silvio may be derived) was the god of trees. [1]
  • The Kabalarian Philosophy states that the name Silvio creates a desire to be responsible, and while a person with this name has good leadership qualities, he’s short on patience. A person named Silvio is ambitious and aggressive; has a quick, creative, and clever mind, and is very independent. It’s difficult for him to tolerate those who are slow and methodical. He loves change, travel, and meeting new people. [1]
  • In numerology, people named Silvio tend to be very active, and they like adventure and excitement. They hate to sit around for long periods; they’re action oriented, and they don’t like rules. They’re optimistic, intelligent, and have visionary ideas. On the down side, they’re prone to dissatisfaction, stubbornness, and obstinacy. They can be self-righteous, impatient, and tend to make hasty decisions.
