Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline are the two newest members of the Jolie/Pitt clan. But where did the monikers originate from?
Of course we turned to momlogic friend Jennifer Moss
for her take. "Knox may be an homage to one of Brad's favorite artists, Archibald Knox
, and also continues the "X-theme" for their boys: Pax, Maddox, Knox." Moss adds, "I also heard it may be a family
surname from Brad's side--which is a popular trend nowadays, using family
surnames as first names."
"Vivienne and Marcheline are traditional French names, coming from Angelina's mom's side of the family. Angelina's mom's name was Marcheline, she passed away in early 2007."
As for BabyNames reader reaction to the names: "So far, our members like the girl's name, not so sure about Knox."
