[ANSTHRLD] Help needed with the French 'Red Fox'

I have someone who is wanting to have a Norman or French surname that
translates into 'Red Fox'. I did some checking, and I believe that 'Fox' is
simply something along the lines of 'Reneaux'. Would there be some way to
specify 'Reneaux Rouge' as a surname? That is just not sounding quite right
to me, and I do not have the French resources in my library (yet) to be able
to check more thoroughly. :(

Also, and another important factor, does anyone have any documentation to
indicate that Reneaux (or the equivalent) would have been used in period?

The given name that the Gentle in question is wishing to use would be
'Anistashia' , which I have not even begun to try to place in France. It
looks pretty Russian to me.

An assistance would be greatly appreciated
