    Default WDYT of:

    What do you think of Knoxley? Knox as a nickname. I would rather have a longer name and a nn. He will be called by both just like my other 3 children. For some reason I like to have a full name and a nn just a preference from me. Can you think of anything else other than Lennox and Mannox that can have Knox as a nn?
    TIA

    I think it's horrible, sorry!!! It sounds like a made up name that's trying to be posh!

    Is that supposed to be a boy or girls name?

    Not my cup of tea, but for an unusual name it's not particularly out there which is a positive

    I have to agree with PPs... it's not the best choice.

    I think Knoxley sounds like you wanted a longer version of Knox so chucked a couple of extra letters on there!

    I'm not a fan either. Does sound a little "I attend Oxford dear"...

    DH has a good friend called Knox, it isn't short for anything it's just Knox. He's Zambian and he it really suits him.

    I like Knox just as it is.

    If you like to have a longer name maybe use a middle name and call them by both some of the time?

    Wow these responses are a little harsh. I actually like it OP!

    I think it's cute, and I prefer it to 'Knox'

    I like unusual names. I'm so bored of most of the names I see on here every week.

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