Lennox \l(en)-nox\ is pronounced LEN-iks. It is of Scottish and Gaelic origin, and the meaning of Lennox is “with many elm trees”. Name of an influential aristocratic landowning family in Scotland in the 16th century. Lennox, a Scottish nobleman, appears in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”.

Most people have not met someone who is named Lennox, especially a girl! The only girl Lennox that I know of is from a TV show Melissa & Joey. All the time when we tell someone new our daughters name, they ask “Like the air conditioner?” or “Like the china?” or “Like the computer system”? Haha, very funny…no! Why in the world would we do any of the above?
Lennox is a family name on Kyle’s side of the family. Usually it is a middle name and for a male but we just loved it for a girl! Lennox has been a name for many people in the Terrell family, but we specifically picked it because it was Kyle’s dads middle name. Unfortunately, John Lennox passed away before I or Lennox ever got to meet him so we wanted to name her after him.
So, yes Lennox is a girl, no she isn’t named after an air conditioner, and we will never find anything with her name on it!!
Do you or someone in your family have an uncommon name that you get asked weird questions about?
