ALVA originates from "elf" or "fairy" in the original Nordic form (elf = alv, fairy = älva).

Correction to two comments here:
The Swedish word for fairy is älva (pronounced EL-vuh), not Alva. Ä and A are different letters with different pronunciation.
Alva is pronounced ULL-vuh in Swedish and Norwegian.

It's pronounced AIL-vuh.

This is Thomas Edison's middle name, isn't it? It sounds more feminine to me, even though in the US it was more common for males. I guess it can fit either gender. I wish this name would make a comeback so it can provide a break from the horribly trendy name Ava!
