How about Savole as a name?

The French word 'savoir' means "to know" (as in knowledge, not 'knowing' someone). Related to words like 'savant.' That's kind of generic enough to be a theme for these games: knowledge, like scientific knowledge.

The 'vol' comes from evolution (tying in the supposed genetics them and Pokemon generally) and revolution (to give it that extra French feel). In both words it comes from a word meaning roughly "to roll or twist." Twist, as in how a double-helix is twisted. (And I think even the word 'helix' is related etymologically.)

It kind of looks French, doesn't it?
