It is also possible that it is from the Old English Aelf-gifa, common royal name for women, meaning 'Gift of the Elves' or 'Magically Gifted'.

Elvira is a female given name. It is of Spanish origin, originally believed to be of Arabic origin, meaning "the white". Other theories is that it is of Germanic or West Gothic origin and that the name means "alert" or "trustworthy".

Elira is a diminutive of Elvira. There is an Albanian name Elira meaning to be free, so with all the different meanings of Elvira/Alvira the name and it’s diminutive means strong, white, truthful, beautiful and free. I prefer the diminutive Elira.
