Everhart of Ann Arbor, Michigan [U.S.A.] purchased their first Borzoi in the Fall of 1929 and soon after selected the name Arborzoi as a composite of Ann Arbor and Borzoi.

"Here is a Borzoi, to walk, proudly and delicately as yourself, across velvet lawns at the hem of your trailing satins, and whose fidelity, moreover, will but increase as your mirror grows less and less courteous." Jerrold Vassall Adams wrote in the introduction to the book. The name of Bransgore is from a village in Hampshire, UK the county in which Mr and Mrs Gingold lived for a time.
