My grandmother's name was Elva - it's a little old-fashioned-sounding, but very pretty.

This name -- Elva -- really is old-fashioned. Don't use it -- it has two bad associations.

I think this name is cute, my grandmother's first name is Elva-Jean. It reminds me of little elves and fairies and the like.

Also another version of it in Latin is "el"- meaning god or god's likeness, and "va" meaning goes or going. The meaning of that will be "God's likes goes." or "does God's likeness go?", or "where's God's likeness going?"

I don't think it's old-fashioned sounding, and so what if it was? It's better than the modern crap people are naming their kids these days. Use this name if you like it- although I definitely prefer Alva.

It really is impossible to combine El- and -va and make a name that means "God + go". El is no more Latin than Coca-Cola, and va in Latin would have been ve-, as in venire. In modern languages derived from Latin, the va- form exists but that doesn't mean that sticking it on to a Hebrew syllable and calling the whole bundle Latin makes any kind of sense.

I love this name! A character in a book was named Elva. So it reminds me of a crazy little girl with a short bob and a very sassy attitude. :) I'd totally name one of my kids this.

My grandma told me this name has an English origin "Elfin"--elf's friend.
