[ANON POST] Orthodox names in the US

Would Modern Orthodox parents living in the US in the early seventies be most likely to give their daughter the legal name Eve, Hava, or Chava for her first name? They're fairly middle-of-the road by MO standards: more liberal than average in some things, more conservative in others.

I've looked at the names of famous MO Americans and couldn't figure it out, and I asked some of the Jewish people I know, but all of them are both very liberal and young enough that they mostly weren't alive in the early seventies, or at least not old enough to remember anything, so they weren't sure.
