Other Origin(s):Gaelic, German
Ulva is a feminine name that boasts strong Celtic roots, perfect for honoring baby’s heritage. A variant of the Gaelic name Ulbha, some might recognize it from the name of a small island off the west coast of Scotland, making Ulva a fitting choice to remind baby of where they came from. Ulva is also thought to have Germanic roots, stemming from the Old Norse úlfr, which means “wolf,” paying homage to baby’s courage, loyalty, and wisdom.
