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 e
ution (tying in the supposed genetics them and Pokemon generally) and re
ution (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?
