I saw the movie Defiance and I found this name.
I think that it is very sweet and also simple and it's meaning is good.
Before I knew only its Arabic variant but this form is also beautiful.

Chaya is also a variation of the Hebrew name 'Chava', which also means 'life'. The names Eve or Eva are Anglicized versions of this name. The original 'Eve' was given this name ('Chava') since she was the 'mother of all life'.
