"Ziva" means "light" or "brightness" in Hebrew. It is a poetic form of the word.

Never heard of it until I started watching NCIS. Now I love it. Ziva David is a strong, intelligent, and beautiful character, so now I think of exactly that kind of person when I hear this. I wouldn't mind a few more Zivas out there.

Ziva (זיבה) means "gonorrhea" in modern Hebrew.

Ziva (זיוה) means "shining," "brilliance," etc.

They're one letter different, vav vs. vet, but pretty much no one in Israel uses this name any more because it's almost the same word as gonorrhea. I've run across a few non-Israeli Jewish people who have this as their Hebrew name and have no idea that Israeli people hear that word and think it's gonorrhea.

Ziva David (pronounced Dah-VEED), from NCIS, is a proud bearer of this name. She is tough, gritty, but can be nice every now and then.

How exotic it is!
I like it because it is very strong but simple. Everyone can pronounce it without problems, and its meaning is beautiful!
My name is Rossana so this name shares with Ziva its "bright" meaning... I like it!

This name is just beautiful. It sounds serious and strong, and still graceful and feminine. It is one of my favorite Z names, along with Zara.

It reminds me of Zika as in the Zika virus but other than that the name sounds alright.

I saw a dog named Ziva once, but the dog was very nice and calm, not to mention a very beautiful dog. I like it as a name a lot. It's a good alternative to the overused Ava.
