EVA Family History

This very unusual name is of early Medieval English origin, and derives from the rare medieval female personal name 'Eve' or 'Eva', from the Hebrew name 'Chava', thought to mean either 'life' or 'serpent'. According to the Book of Genesis, Eve was the name of the first woman, and the modern surname may in some cases be derived from someone who had played the part of Eve in a medieval mystery play or pageant depicting the Creation; the part would always have been played by a man, so the surname in this instance would descend through the male line, as distinct from the direct descent through the female line as a metronymic from the given name...
