The place Silvan is a great expression of the word Sylvan

I was quite taken by the Word of the Day for Saturday, March 27, 2010, which was, sylvan. Which means: 1. Of or pertaining to woods or forest regions.
2. Living or located in a wood or forest.
3. Abounding in forests or trees; wooded.
Living almost at the foot of the Mt Dandenong Hills and not far from the locality of Silvan here on the outskirts of Melbourne, I could not but agree that the place was aptly named in the past, Even if much of it today is under cultivation for flowers and vegetables, much of it still pertains to woods or forest regions.
Which brings me to your question for today. How aptly named is your Suburb?
