Not sure if there has been a thread on this and my searches aren't finding anything, so whatever. Anyway, I'm trying to figure out the names for the starters. I figure:

Chespin is a variation of chestnut/porcupine.

Fennekin is a variation of fennic fox/kindle or kindling.

But Froakie has me stumped. Frog/??? I'd guess something to do with being old maybe.

I think foam could fit giving Froakie's foaminess.

But then it would have been called Foakie, wouldn't it?

Froaki's Japanese name also refers to foam, so...
