"My name is Alva and I am female. My mother is the only one eho likes the name. My father and the rest of the family wont call me by that name. My friends call me Alva. I used to hate it but because its so unique and rare, I like it now. People always mispronounce it though. I get "alba" alot. Ihave met no males with this name but about4 females in 42 years."

"Correctly a male name, as in Thomas Alva Edison, but occasionally given to girls 100 years ago because of its similarity to Alma. Though in America this is a grandad-granny name, it's quite popular as a girl's name in Sweden, though there were Swedish girls a century ago named Alva - Greta Garbo's elder sister, for one."

"Borne by Gunnar Myrdal's wife and by Greta Garbo's elder sister Alva Gustafson. Unfortunately, the latter died in 1925 aged only 22." Jun. 9, 2008:
