Etymology[edit]

Perhaps from Proto-West Germanic *siloþ, from a verb derived from Proto-Germanic *silāną (to be still, be silent) +‎ -oþ; or perhaps from Proto-Germanic *silōþuz. If so, then related to Old Norse sil (slowly or calmly flowing water between two falls in a stream), Gothic 𐌰𐌽𐌰𐍃𐌹𐌻𐌰𐌽 (anasilan, to cease, stop, fall silent), Old English sālnes (silence).
