Re: Origin of girl's name "Seiva" #romania #yiddish #names

Given names in all areas of Eastern Europe were the same or similar. I searched the JRI-Poland database for Seiva and similar spellings and the results were: 

Seiva 4
Siva 1
Seiwe 14    (in Polish the "w" is pronounced like our "v")
Siewa  93
Siwa 117

I think your Sieva is a real, but not common given name.
