Lord Copper

Scoop by Evelyn Waugh
Came across the name Lord Copper in an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal this morning. Never heard of him, found he was a character in the 1938 novel Scoop:
Lord Copper, the newspaper magnate, has been said to be an amalgam of Lord Northcliffe and Lord Beaverbrook: a character so fearsome that his obsequious foreign editor, Mr Salter, can never openly disagree with him, answering "Definitely, Lord Copper" and 'Up to a point, Lord Copper" in place of "yes" or "no". - Wikipedia
Older son corrects my pronunciation of Evelyn, telling me it is more Evil-in, or prehaps Eve-lyn, as opposed to the woman's name of Ev-el-in.
