    Knox is an Old English name. I prefer it to Knoxley.

    I don't mind it but then again I had Knoxon (knock-son) on my short lists for my boys names.

    Apologies but I don't like any of those options, however I do tend to gravitate towards kind of boring names I guess!

    I hate when people say that a name is pretentious. I think it's such a silly and mean thing to say. How can a *name* be pretentious?
    To answer your question OP, I'm not a fan of Knoxley.. Lennox is a cool name. Why don't you just use the name Knox? It's a cool, strong, edgy name. Very nice!

    You are right...a name cannot be pretentious because it is not a person...I think you are probably splitting hairs a little though because I am sure you understood my intention in spite of the personification.

    I did think twice just after writing that I did not like the name...being mean-spirited and nasty is not something I aspire to but...the OP asked forum members what they thought of the name. If people don't want to hear other people's opinions then surely they won't ask...?

    I think my response was reasonable but I can see that it might offend some people's sensitivities.

    NO offense was taken. When it comes down to it if I love a name I will use it. Everyone said they HATED Amahlia and I used it anyway as I loved it. I have regretted my seconds sons name for years now and won't have that again.

    This name (Knoxley) I am not sure of. Certainly don't love it but then again I can't find anything I love. There are plenty of names that most people love that I think is hideous. I won't name names bc to many people love them.

    I tossed up Lennox for a while but really I don't like it. Don't think DH would ever go for it since he lived in Lennox st for 26 years.

    It really is annoying me I can't find anything I love. I am terrified of regretting a name again.

    It doesn't sound right to me.

    Knox on it's own is a better option.
