Chava is a feminine name of Hebrew origin meaning “life.” It is the Hebrew form of Eve—the first woman created by God in the Hebrew Bible—which itself means “living.” Chava is derived from the Hebrew chavah or havah, meaning “to give life” or “to live” making this Biblical name a befitting moniker for welcoming new life to the world.
