Yeah well in French we got some words coming from silva like 'sylvestre', which means from the forest or 'sylviculture' (we somehow replaced the 'i' with a 'y' along the way though)... But it only means forest for us and it has a tranquil ring to it while 'jungle' has a savage ring to it.
That being said, the word savage ('sauvage' in french) seems to come from silva too so I guess it can have that meaning for us too.
