    These two Ford associations are the first two I think of as well since Ford brand is made here and the former president's museum is in a nearby city.

    I like Ford. I think of someone masculine and handsome with this name. I prefer it to Knox. But I wouldn't worry too much about the Fort Knox thing, it's not a fn/mn combo, it's brothers.

    Many of your name combos seem to be teetering on the line of handsome and action hero to me though. Personally I would just try not to get too far past that line. Otherwise, go for it.
    Some current considerations:

    Sylvie Madeleine | Etta Rosalie | Miranda Sylvie | Margot Elspeth | Hazel Matilda
    Archer Daniel | Emmett Sebastian | Donovan Ezra | Leo Anderson | Lucian Matteo

    Well despite the negative feedback on Knox- I for sure will be using it because, as annoyed as I was to have it go "celebrity," it is my maiden name that used to be obscure and I have always planned on using it on a boy. And my dad would be too disappointed if I let its untimely popularity sway me. Ford my be just a passing fancy but right now it seems so handsome and perfectly uncommon to me. Hubby may be the deciding "no" on it, but most of the time that thought just makes me like the name even more bc I feel I cant have it. Haha!
    For now if I had 2 of each- Girls: Sunday and Willa Boys: Knox and Ford or Penn
    Girls: Vivi Charles, Lila Charles, Sunday Kate, Willa Lace, Landry Kate, Monroe Laycee, Ezra Kate, Lucy madden, Lila snow, Charlize Layce, Hazel Anne, Indy, Wynter
    Boys: Knox Maverick, Knox Ryder, Archer Allen, Archer Atlas, Shepard Knox, Monroe Hendrix, Madden McLane, Finn Allen, Crewe Archer, Quade Allen, Dash Allen, Thayer,Tennyson, Vance, Ford Allen, Penn, Wilder, Rook, Hoyt, Holt, Hart, Bishop
