"I am named Iva after my Grandmother. My Aunt (mother?s Sister) is also Iva. I have always loved my name being so unique. I have only ever met one other Iva not related to me, in 4th grade a girl named ?Iva Bell Smith? came to my school for a very short time. I do get annoyed with how much it is mispronounced though. I it?s I-V-A not Eva -Ava - Ivy - Ida -Ada - it is beyond me why it is so hard. It is short and sweet." Apr. 11, 2019:
