The Japanese word shinra is shortened from shinrabanshō meaning "all things in nature", hence the plant-life motif. This could also allude to the concept of kami, or "Shinto gods/spirits" that are omnipresent. The word "sylvan" refers to an association with the woodland, specifically that which inhabits the wood, is made of tree materials, or comprises the forest itself.
