This was an incredibly difficult decision to put just one name forth into the finalist category.  So, after much debate and discussion we have decided that two people will go forward, as both entered the name: 
OSWIN, meaning 'Divine Friend.'
As the fox has been the namesake of the company and he has seen and ushered in many beautiful horse models created by talented hands of friends, we thought this name would be fitting to go forward into the final round on March 31st. That being said however, we don't know how we will choose just one! 
Thanks to all for entering! The two finalists will get an email to notify them they are entered into the final round to be decided on 31st of March.  In the event there are multiple entries for the same name, if we choose your name then it is only fitting that each entry receives a fox prototype.  After all, we need many more little foxes in the world!
Now, on to the next week friends and fans.  From March 8th to March 14th, we will be accepting entries of name suggestions for the fox under the category of:


Like the English, the Scottish didn't really use last names until they were introduced by the Normans somewhere in the 11th century.  This is where the 'Mc' and 'Mac' came to be used as a trend which continues today; as families considered this prefix to mean 'Son of' or ancestor of.  Our Copperfox family has a surname of "MacFarlane" which we found after a very fascinating visit to a genealogy center in Edinburgh.   These prefixes were especially used in the Highlands.  So what is your family surname, or what names do you think would fit our fox that is of Scottish surname descent?  We can't wait to see what you come up with.
We will accept one entry per person per week.  Please email your name suggestion to:
Thank you and a hearty Good Luck to all! 
31st of March the fox name will be chosen, and the winner (or winners) will receive the first of the fox prototype figures in traditional scale.
Ok, that's enough banter from me, enjoy your weekend.
