Vim, vigor, vavoom, vivacious. These words are related by their liveliness, but only vivacious has a Latin root to that effect.

But both vim and vigor come from Latin roots meaning energy or force. That's lively to me.

Perhaps there's a meaning to vavoom I don't know, but it's not necessarily lively to me. It's a slang term used for a particularly attractive and sexy woman.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
