In Audrey Niffenegger's novel 'The Time Traveler's Wife', Alba DeTamble is the daughter of the novel's two protagonists, Clare Abshire DeTamble and Henry DeTamble. Like her father, she is a CDP (Chrono-Displaced Person), who finds herself transported back and forth in time to different points in her life seemingly randomly.

Thought I'd mention that the Gaelic word 'Alba', meaning Scotland is pronounced 'al-a-pa'. In the Spanish/Italian first name form it was also the name of Lord Byron's daughter (1817-1822), given to her by her mother Claire Clairmont, although Byron changed it to Clara Allegra. Don't know why Byron didn't like it though- I think it's lovely!
