Fort Knox is where the United States government keeps all its gold.

This name always makes me laugh. I have no idea why, but the way you say it just sounds so funny.

I can never hear this name without thinking of the character (from Dead Poets Society): a nice, passionate young man!

This name sounds very dorky, like the name of some annoying little kid or a stupid frat boy. Plus, it is pronounced just like 'knocks'.

Knox sounds like NOx (pronouced nawks) which is a term used in the oil & gas industry for emissions from combustion sources. Also a byproduct from car engines.

The name KNOX means "round hill". Why would someone give a child such a name? It is absolutely dorky. For Angelina and Brad - disappointed!

In Scotland at least this name will always be associated with John Knox, the Calvinist preacher who was one of the leaders of the Scottish reformation.

Can also mean "night" in Latin.

I thought "nox" meant night in Latin. But I might be mistaken.

Bernard Knox, literary scholar. He wrote prefaces for many of Robert Fagles' translations, such as the Iliad, Odyssey, and Aeneid (they're both absolutely amazing!)

My nephew is named Knox and I happen to like it very much. A name shouldn't be defined by its meaning. It's a name, someone's identity.
Knox is a very nice name and I think it's an easy name to carry through life and won't get old. Love it!

It reminds me of the word "noxious". It sounds evil to me.

I actually find this name strangely alluring, surprisingly enough. I suppose I relate it to Fort Knox, which makes me think of terms along the lines of "Strong; Loyal, Committed; Faithful; Powerful; Determined; Brave; Courage", but I am aware those definitions are a far cry from the actual meaning. The image of a barbed-wire fence cannot seemingly leave my mind, either.

Would I use it as a name, though? Regrettably or not, no.

This is a strange name. I prefer it left as a surname, personally. To me it sounds very unprofessional and childish, and I can't shake the fact that it sounds exactly like "knocks".

To me, "Knox" sounds like it should be the name of a big, beefy, maybe-not-the-brightest guy with a buzz cut, probably because "ox" is part of the name.
