  1. Knox is a strong name and I love the uniqueness
    about it. My husband and I were choosing between Knox and Maddox, and we decided Knox was the best fit for him.

  2. My baby boy’s full name is Thomas Knox. We chose Thomas because that is my husband’s middle name (he’s a junior but we didn’t want a third). And I chose the name Knox. We live in Knoxville, TN & have one daughter who is six. Since living here, when she turned one, we started trying for another baby. We have prayed, cried, I have had two uterine surgeries, taken Clomid, hcg trigger shots, tracked ovulation, & experienced a miscarriage over 5 years. Finally we said enough, we need a break. Three months later, we found out we were expecting this sweet boy. God truly answered our prayers full circle & since it all happened in this place, I chose, & love, the name Knox.

  3. My husband and I originally liked the name when we were discussing names with our first pregnancy. We had a miscarriage. We then were having a hard time deciding when we wanted to try again. I was out driving and saw a bumper sticker with the name Knox on it. It really surprised me and I happened to be ovulating. So I went home and told my husband, maybe this is a sign to try again. We did and then we found out we were having a baby boy. At that point we saw the name Knox on signs everywhere (which is odd because I don’t feel like it is that common). We felt like our baby boy was clearly suppose to be KNOX!

  4. Because John Knox was a man who took the gospel to Scotland. He was so bold he was willing to risk his life for the Scottish to know Jesus. Mary Queen of Scots said “I fear the prayers of John Knox more than all the armies of Europe.”

    We pray our son will have a passionate relationship with Jesus. We pray our son will boldly carry the gospel to places who don’t know Jesus no matter the cost.
