    Name Meaning

    Scottish and English (Northumberland and Durham): from a genitive or plural form of Old English cnocc ‘round-topped hill’, hence a topographic name for someone who lived on a hilltop, or a habitational name from any of the places in Scotland and northern England named with this element, now spelled Knock, in particular one in Renfrewshire.

    Scottish: habitational name from any of the places in Scotland named with Gaelic cnoc ‘hill’, for example Knock in Renfrewshire. It is not possibly to disentangle this from the surname derived from the English etymon mentioned in 1 above.

    Americanized form of one or more similar (like-sounding) Jewish (eastern Ashkenazic) surnames.
