Origin of the name HEVA.
Etymology of the name HEVA.
Meaning of the baby name HEVA.

  

HEVA.  Latin Vulgate form of biblical Eve (q.v.), meaning "life."  Hawa is a Java form.

HEVA.  Possibly a Gothic name meaning "wife."

... M. Peigné Delacourt, to whom we are indebted for these details, answers unhesitatingly, "We can.  It is probably the tomb of Theodoric I, king of the Visigoths."  But how reconcile such a theory with the narrative of Jornandes?  To accomplish this, M. Delacourt imagines a few unrecorded details, which of course no one is bound to accept, but which certainly seem to bring us a little nearer to that tremendous battle-field, dim with the haze of fourteen centuries.  "When the servants of Theodoric," so his imagined story runs, "found that their king was wounded to death, they dragged him a little aside from the 'vast and manifold and ruthless conflict.'  They dug a shallow trench in the gravelly soil, and there they laid the bruised and trampled body of the snowy-bearded warrior.  His golden-hilted sword was still by his side, his cutlass hung from the baldric, the purple robe of his royalty was fastened over his shoulders by the golden fibula.  Round his neck was the golden torque, his forearm was clasped by the unclosed bracelet, on his finger was the ring of gold bearing the mysterious name Heva, perhaps a remembrance of his dead wife, perhaps1 a symbol of his kingship.  All these things were buried with him..." 
     1 Heva may possibly mean "wife" or "house."  But it seems more probable that it is a proper name.  The termination a is frequent in Gothic names.  More so, however, we must admit in those of men than of women. (Italy and Her Invaders, Hodgkin, 1880)
