There are 27 Knight names for baby boys. Knighthood in the Middle Ages in Europe was associated with a code of chivalry. These were ideals espoused by the Christian faith, and warriors who were knighted were expected to uphold the values of faith and honor both in and off the battlefield. Knighthood was traditionally conferred upon warriors who were mounted on horseback. Some knight names are thus associated with the horses or the idea of the cavalry.
