The only name I can think of that comes close is Hebrew, nonetheless used in Spain: Javiv..

@gollum,
Depending on how it is pronounced, it could also sound like Herve.

However, Hervé being a French name, it's really uncommon in Spain.

Actually, very rare compared to Javiv, which pronunciation is close to what Gollum is looking for..

@Francis,
How is Javiv pronounced? Does it have a "J" sound or an "H" sound?

@gollum,
The pronunciation of the J is pretty close of that of an "aspirate" H.

Like a R rolling in the back of the throat..

@gollum,
Javier. Pronounced HA Vee Air. Javi is the familiar or diminutive.

An esoteric talent closely related to gargling peanut butter.
