Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חַוָּה i.q. חַיָּה (from the root חָוָה = חָיָה, comp. הַוָּה and הַיָּה), f.

(1) life. Hence [Eve], pr.n. of the first woman, as being the mother of all living (אֵם כָּל־חַי), Genesis 3:20, 4:1. LXX. Εὔα (comp. חִוִּי, Εὐαῖος ). Vulg. Heva.

(2) i.q. חַיָּה No. 2, Arab. حَىُّ a family, a tribe, especially of Nomades, hence a village of Nomades, a village [“prop. place where one lives, dwells, so Germ. leben in pr.n. Eisleben, Afchersleben”], (as on the contrary אֹהֶל, أَهْلُ properly a tent, hence a family, men), Numbers 32:41; Deuteronomy 3:14; Joshua 13:30; Judges 10:4; 1 Kings 4:13. Another etymology has commonly been sought from Arab. حوى to collect, to gather together, V. to roll oneself in a circle; which is altogether needless.
