I looked it up on Wikipedia. Luario is derived from the japanese pronunciation of oracle, which is o-ri-ca-lu. By taking the syllables and turning them backwards, you get Lucario. It may have also originated from Cairo, Egypt, which would explain its Anubis-like appearance.

Zapdos= Zap (electric)+ Dos (two). The electric 2nd legendary bird. #145
Moltres= Molten (fire)+ Tres (three). The fiery 3rd legendary bird. #146
