I suggest that the name Little Silver is meant sarcastically i.e. "not profitable" or "little profit". I do not think the placename is derived from Latin. because all the places called little silver are recently named e.g. at Tiverton the name is first recorded in 1621, that at High Bickington is 1663 and that at Clyst Hidon was first seen in 1765.
