Fox, in my words

siolan : fox

The Fennas word for fox is siolan. Siolan is a rare last name. Siolan is a very rare first name. In Irish similar siol means seed.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh words for fox are cadno (Southern) and llwynog (Northern), the Irish word for fox is sionnach, and the Breton word for fox is louarn. In addition, the Cornish word for fox is lowarn, and the Manx word for fox (since I found it) is shynnagh.
