Chava is the born-nickname given to people in Mexico whose real name is Salvador. This nickname was set on stone when you were named Salvador.

Chava es el apodo dado en Mexico a las personas cuyo nombre es Salvador o Salvadore

-Diminutive: Chavita

The nickname does not mean "GIRL" as in the word "Chava for girl. This nickname is not offensive nor it means anything at all.
Hi, my name is Salvador.

-Ahh how are you Chava, nice to meet you

Hi I am Salvador but everyone calls me Chava

Hola me llamo Salvador pero todos me llaman Chava

Chava (Eve) is the name of the wife of Adam in the book of Bereshit (Genesis). Her name is spelled "chet, vav, heh" in Hebrew. The root of her name is related to "life" (chet, yud, heh)
"V'haadam yada et chava vatahar vateled et qain vatomer qaniti ish et HaShem." Ber 4:1

"The man knew his wife Eve; she conceived, gave birth to Cain and said 'I have acquired a man from the L-RD". Gen 4:1

The people who hang around on street corners, hurl abuse at passers by, smoke all the time and dress entirely in sportswear. Chavas is a term used almost expressly in the North East of England and is often used to refer to any ne'er do well who would steal your eyes if you weren't looking.
After I shouted a retort back at them, the chavas chased me up the street but they promptly collapsed in a fit of smokers' coughs.
