    Transylvania (Romanian: Ardeal or Transilvania; Hungarian: Erdély; German: Siebenbürgen (help·info), see also other denominations) is a historical region in the central part of Romania. Bounded on the east and south by the Carpathian mountain range, historical Transylvania extended in the west to the Apuseni Mountains; however, the term frequently encompasses not only Transylvania proper, but also the historical regions of Crişana, Maramureş, and (Romanian) Banat.

    Could it be "transylvanian"?

    I am from Transylvania and it is "transylvanian". the explanation of Stuie is very accurate. You can find further information about the origin of the German denomination "Siebenbürgen" on Wikipedia. The origin of this German denomination is not very clear...not even for the Saxons from Transylvania (Siebenbürger Sachsen).
    In Hungarian "Erdély" means exactly like in the Latin Transylvania "on the other side of the woods". The Romanians call Transylvania "Ardeal" which is derived from the Hungarian "Erdély", however they started using later (I think in the 19th century...not sure though exactly when)the term Transylvania.
    I hope this info is helpful.

    Bela Bartok, in his six volume Mikrokosmos, has a piece called "Siebenbürgisch" (it is piece number 53). The title is translated as "In transylvanian style."
