I like the name Maddox, because it is very unusual, and it has a unique beauty to it. This is my sister's first name.

Maddox is a surname derived from the personal name Madoc or Madog. This name is derived from the Welsh root mad meaning "lucky; fortunate." Madoc was the name of a legendary Welsh prince who, according to folklore, sailed to the New World in 1170. The name Maddox came to public attention in 2002, when American actress Angelina Jolie named her adopted son Maddox. As of 2010, it ranked #151 on the top 7000 boys' names in the USA and #1448 for girls.
