Meaning

Chava is a Hebrew name that means “life” or “living”. It is derived from the same root as the word “chai” which is used as a toast in Jewish tradition to celebrate life. In Jewish culture, the name Chava is often associated with the first woman created by God, who was named in the Torah as Eve. Many Jewish girls were named Chava in her honor and to celebrate the gift of life. The name has been passed down through generations and remains a popular choice for many Jewish families.
