Vulpes Vulpes is Latin for red fox, or if you want a name that is related to foxes, try combining Latin names from various breeds. For example, Alopex Lagopus is Arctic fox, but if you combine Alopex Lagopus and Vulpes Vulpes I find it creates a nice sounded name - Alopex Vulpes. This doesn't mean anything really if you translate it back to English, but its a nice sounding name that still basically means 'fox'.
