Knightley is a British masculine name replete with lofty connotations, largely thanks to a certain Keira Knightly. Yet before Knightley became synonymous with period dramas and epic romances, it graced the Old English tongue as denoting a "knight's meadow." In the centuries since, Knightley has been the title baronet and actor alike, enjoying much prestige along the way.
