of names; its disclaimer states as much.
The Quenya Lapseparma gives _Taurie_ as a Quenya translation of Silvia,
and that seems apt since Q _taure_ = L 'silva'. So for Sindarin, I would
recommend using _taur_ + a feminine ending, like _-eth_, _-wen_, _-ien_,
or _-iel_. E.g. _Tauriel_, literally 'forest daughter' ... rather nice,
