[Facts] Russian form of Silvio?
Is there one?
Or a male form of Silvio that is used there?
I didn't see one in the database, but I feel like the culture probably has one.
Am I wrong?Thanks.

The main character of Pushkin's The Shot- Vystrel- is Silvio. That's the one you might be thinking of. Even in Russian, his name isn't translated into a Slavic form.

While Kirke is probably right about the form, your answer is more the answer I need. I need the version to use if I'm naming a character that's half-Russian. The novel is in English so I'll just use Silvio. Thanks a million!

The fact that this character is called Silvio does not mean there is not a Russian form of this name. Silvio is a form of Silvius and the Russian form of Silvius is Сильвий. Every Slavic language will have a form. As an example, my first language is a Slavic one(Polish) and our form of this name is Sylwiusz. It's not really used but this translation exists.

Silvio is a form of Silvius and the Russian form is Сильвий but I'm not sure how to pronounce it.I don't think it's commonly used.

That's exactly what I asked for. Could have known answers weren't as easy as I hoped.
My Russian bf just read that to me, but I'm utterly lost. Haha. Cyrillic and I are strangers. I make him read names for fun occasionally, but mostly because it's the same to me as someone reading Cuneiform.
Thanks for the help though. It looks epic.ETA: We've decided to go with Silvio or Silviu. We're lazy.
