Sean, what's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. If you prefer to call your umbrella a brolly box, it won't offend me in the least.

Semantics. "Brolly" is just short for umbrella, mostly in Great Brittan and the "relm." It's the "box" part that differentiates it from an ordinary umbrella.
