The Lennox is an area in Scotland with Loch Lomond at its heart. It was an important earldom in mediaeval times. Lennox became a surname in two ways; in noble families who at various times held the earldom and more generally among people who had once lived there and who had moved further afield. In a time when few people had surnames, describing a newcomer as "of Lennox" or "a'Lennox" made it clearer to whom you were referring. Another popular custom in Scots names was the preservation of a mother's maiden name by giving it to one or more of her children as a middle name. Frequently this was then used as a forename particularly by the eldest son. In this way common Scots surnames like Craig, Bruce and Douglas have become even commoner forenames. Lennox has undergone the same transformation, from placename to surname to forename.
