Being a novice user, I still have much to learn in terms of languages, etymology and historical linguistics. Feel free to correct me on my talk page.

Explanation of my name

[edit]

I took the name Sylvanus (Latin, /silˈu̯aː.nus/, equivalent to English Woods) based on what I thought to be a semantic matching to my Chinese surname . Upon reading the following definition for 梁 in the 說文解字 Shuowen Jiezi dictionary,

梁、水也。从木从水,刅聲。

I've come to the conclusion that perhaps Pontifex is a better translation.
