Really leaning towards a kind of unisex name now and I'm very drawn to Lennox for my baby girl. She's due 7th March but my last came early so honest opinions most welcome as struggling so much to decide (my turn this time as partner decided for last daughter).

Thanks all smile

I would say that Lennox was a boy's name, rather than unisex. I can only think of Lennox Lewis.

“As in Annie?”

Lennox isn't unisex. And it's awful.

Don't like Lennox.

I know a baby girl called Larkin

“As in Phillip?”

Nope, dreadful.

Lennox is a boy's name through and through, I'm afraid.

Dylan? Cameron? Jamie? These are unisex names imo.

Maybe you could have Lennie as a nickname for another't know! Lena is lovely? I know it's not unisex but has the "len" bit in it.

Also I know a big massive dog called Lennox. Doesn't strike me as a name for a little baby girl! grin

Lennox seems very masculine to me because of the aforementioned Lennox Lewis. He's the only person I can think of with Lennox as a first name.

In the USA it would work. Here? Nope. That said its your choice. Its quite harsh sounding even for a boy.

Unisex names, Billie, Sam, Ronnie, Alex, Charlie, Jo, Jamie, Elliott

I know a girl called Reggie-Rose, I like that, think the Rose takes the edge off? Also Teddy.

Hmmalittlefishy Mon 18-Dec-17 13:53:37

I agree with the above it's a masculine name.
Also everytime I hear it I think of Davis Walliams in the rock profile sketch saying 'lennox' that could just be me though! fblush

Don't do it.

“As in Phillip?”

I said "oh, after the poet?" and they looked at me blankly. had never heard of him smile

Definately a boy's name and unattracive IMO.
Some good suggestions above- also Hilary, ( as in Benn or Mantell) Kim,Lee , Frances ,Lesley can be used for boys or girls. ( Obviously Frances and Lesley have different spelling for boys)

Alex? With Lex as a nick name? Sort of similar sound.

xmasgrinch Mon 18-Dec-17 14:03:27

It's a fairly popular boys name in my home country.

Marv1nGay3 Mon 18-Dec-17 14:05:22

Lexi is nicer?

Slipperqueen3 Mon 18-Dec-17 14:06:00

Pallisers that’s what happened when I met the mother of Anäis. “Nin? The House of Incest?” Horrified and disgusted looks, followed by “Gallagher.”

She also pronounced it “Annay.” Thicket.

Have you been watching Melissa and Joey OP? There's a teen girl called Lennox in that. I thought it was strange at first but it has grown on me,

MrsFoxPlus4 Mon 18-Dec-17 14:16:26

One of my favourite girls names is Lux pronounced lucks.

Heard it on a tv serious called life’s unexpected.

I like lennox.
