Sawvel Name Meaning
Origin unidentified. Compare Sawvell. It could perhaps be a respelling of French Sauval(le), which, according to Morlet, may be a topographic name from saus, an old form of saul ‘willow’ + val ‘valley’, or perhaps of French Sauville, a habitational name from places so named in Ardennes and Vosges.
