The names that have a meaning are rare IMO. "Koivu" means "bouleau" in french, that's the only one I know in the Habs.

I heard on infoman that koivu means work...

I also heard on the same show that saku was a brand of beer in finland...

So if you think about it, our captain's name could mean BEER - WORK

Koivu, in Finnish, means the same as birch, in English. ... The noun birch, the tree, not the verb birch. And if you really want to be specific then you must remember that of the genus Betula only the white birch (Betula pubescens and Betula pendula) are native of Finland, so in common Finnish usage koivu refers to white birch only.

Saku is a Finnish version of Zechariah, a biblical name.

So a translation of Saku Koivu would be Zach Birch or you might go with Zachary White Birch for that Native American feel.


--Flam

PS. I'm native Finnish speaker, but I am not etymo- or biologist, so at least the koivu=birch part is correct; the rest is just something I looked up on the net.
