Reply to: what does it mean???? by Vaulty
Vaulty is registered in the Oxford English Dictionary as:
"resembling a vault; having the arching form of a vault". The word "vault" itself entered english via the french "voute" which itself stems from the Latin "volvere," namely "to turn".

Assuming the name was taken from a German gal, it was probably originally pronounced "Fawlty," as in evetyone's favorite resort in Torquay :)

German : Will you stop talking about the war!
Basil : Me? You started it!
German : We did not start it.
Basil : Yes you did, you invaded Poland...
