Concise Bible Dictionary:

A name given by Adam to his wife after they had fallen, and after God had spoken of “her seed,” and had told her that in sorrow she should bring forth children. The Hebrew name is chavvah, which signifies “life,” Adam adding that she was “the mother of all living” (Gen. 3:2020And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. (Genesis 3:20); Gen. 4:11And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. (Genesis 4:1)). Eve being formed from a rib taken out of Adam, which God “built” into a woman, and hence called by him Isha, is a beautiful type of the church being of Christ and presented to Him (compare Eph. 5:31-3231For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:31‑32)).
Eve is twice mentioned in the New Testament. A woman is to be silent in the church: she is not to exercise authority over the man, for Adam was formed before Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but she was. This deception is further explained by showing that it was the serpent who beguiled Eve by his subtlety, and it is the same enemy who seeks now to ensnare the saints (2 Cor. 11:33But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:3); 1 Tim. 2:1313For Adam was first formed, then Eve. (1 Timothy 2:13)).
