From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Silvy family. The original bearer of the name Silvy, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Silvy family originally lived in one of the numerous places named Silva, which are scattered throughout the provinces of Leon, Coruna, Lugo and Oviedo. The surname Silvy was derived from the Latin word "silva," which meant "wood."
