    Name Meaning

    English: of Norman origin, a nickname for a wild or uncouth person, from Middle English and Old French salvage, sauvage ‘wild, untamed’ (from Late Latin salvaticus, literally ‘man of the woods’, a derivative of Latin silva ‘wood’ influenced by Latin salvus ‘whole’, i.e. natural). Compare French Sauvage .

    Irish (Down): generally of English origin (it was taken to County Down in the 12th century), this name has also sometimes been adopted as equivalent of Gaelic Ó Sabháin, the name of a small south Munster sept, which was earlier Anglicized as O'Savin (see Savin ).

    Americanized form of Jewish (Ashkenazic) Savich and of Serbian Savić (see Savic ).
