Hi,

From man page:

       -y VolumeGroup
            Specifies the name to use for the new volume group. [b]If this flag is not used, the system automatically generates a new name.[/b]

            The volume group name can only contain the following characters: "A" through "Z," "a" through "z," "0" through "9," or "_" (the underscore), "-" (the minus sign), or "." (the period). All
            other characters are considered invalid.

See an example where it give the name vg00, vg01, vg02 and so on.

[root@nodetest:/] importvg hdisk2
vg00
