AILBHE.  Unisex.  Irish name meaning "rocky," from Gaelic ailbheach.  Also spelled Oilbhe.  In English, it is Alva, Alvy, and Elva.

    Tobar-Oilbhe, i.e. Olvy's or Alvy's well; Oilbhe or Ailbhe being a woman's name formerly common among the Irish.  This name is now anglicised Tober-Elva, and is that of a remarkable well, giving name to a townland in the parish of Baslick, barony of Ballintober, and county of Roscommon, and in the very centre of the plain of Magh-Aoi, or Machaire-Chonnacht.  In the translation of the Registry of Clonmacnoise, made for Sir James Ware, by Duald Mac Firbis, this place is called Tober-Ilbhe.
