I like it, but not sure how usable it is. It rhymes with Hovis, and that makes me think of bread. Also, it reminds me of Chloe and Clover, both female names, and feels a little like one of these, combined with Mavis.

My first association is the first king of the Francs, and that is pretty cool! The old Germanic means "hold" and "combat"
