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.
In "The House of the Spirits (La Casa de los Espíritus)" a novel written by Isabel Allende, born 1942, Alba is Blanca's daughter and Clara's granddaughter. Together with her grandfather Esteban she tells the story using Clara's diary.
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!
