I like this name. A cute nickname might be Olive. It gives me the the impression of a strong, rebellious (yet just) character because of the King of Devil's Island assosiation.

Olav was C1's name in King of Devil's Island, a Norwegian movie with Stellan Skasgard in it. Olav is the (mostly) rule-obeying boy. It is only near the middle-end that he becomes more defiant (yet just!)

I am guessing it is pronounced O-lahf.
