Something about it sounds lyrical and soft to me, like it could be a male elf's name in the Lord of the Rings. I love it.

In Britain the name Alvar - rarely used - is virtually synonymous with Alvar Liddell (1908-81), an iconic BBC radio newsreader of polished tones who was active during the 1940s and 1950s. Of Anglo-Swedish parentage, his full name was Tord Alvar Quan Liddell.

Pronounced al-vahr (at least in the case of British newsreader Alvar Liddell).

Alvar is also a Spanish medieval name, the ancient form of Alvaro. It was pretty common back then, i.e. Alvar Fañez, the Cid's field marshall, or Alvar Nuñez Cabeza de Vaca, a 16th c. conquistador. I definitely love it so much, that my first son is named Alvar. At first family tried to discourage me, and still he gets named "Alvaro"; but I think this is a very sounding name, unheard of but not tacky, beautiful, manly and classical. I really think we Spaniards should "rescue" old Castilian names all but forgotten and in turn forget about weird foreign imports.
