MED defines "Volatile" as (a) A bird, esp. a wild bird; (b) a bird raised or prepared for consumption; (c) any winged or flying creature, including both birds and insects. http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED51373 Volatile could be a plausible surname based on the fact that Reaney and Wilson includes generic wild bird terms for surnames.
