Liking this as potential middle name.

This is my son's middle name. We love it because his first name is fairly popular so we wanted to spice it up. Also, the meaning behind it. To us, a knight in shining armor is a honorable man who is brave and noble! Characteristics of what we want of son to have! I think this would be a great middle name for boys :) especially parents who want so edge to their child's first name.
