What about Robin Wood?
The sparkle of sounds in the music boxes have called me from the beginning already the association with the birds that whistle their melodies from the branches of the trees.
When I was once in the forest to breathe some inspiration and sat down on a bench, a small red robin came and sat beside me, and I thought; Of course !, how could it be otherwise, you become the image of it! The bird that can sing nicely and is a true friend of people. Since then the robin is the image of the music boxes. (although there is also a wren with it)
When the music boxes went to all kinds of countries, I thought, now it's time to give a striking name to my music box company, and I was very pleased when I discovered that a Robin is called Robin in English, what a coincidence! my name is Rob and I work in Wood!
The association with Robin Hood who lived in the woods and according to the legend "took from the rich and gave to the poor" is not that bad either, I'll probably do something with that later.
