It sounds nice with the Hebrew pronunciation, but Chava would cause bullying in England because it looks like that nasty word "chav" used to describe lower-class people.

I don't know why it says it's Modern Hebrew. Chava is the form used in the Hebrew Bible. [noted -ed]

I like this a lot. It doesn't have the Christian connotations of "Eve," "Ava" or any of those variants, and it doesn't look like it would be pronounced "Have-a" like "Hava." I imagine it with a gutteral "H" sound like Channah or Chaim, but I like the hard "K" sound better.

Chava is not pronounced the same as Chav. It's a hard Ch sound made from the back of your throat (like in the Hebrew phrase l'chaim).
