My mam's mam's family were Cox and it is a different origin to the English surname. It is an Anglicised form of 'Coch' meaning red in Welsh. And was often used in the middle ages as a monica for some one with red hair.
Yep you're completely right, my dad is from the south of Wales and it does come from the word coch, pretty perfect for my grandad - he was a redhead like me :)

anglised in Ireland from mac cuchoille
Andy cox (bath, somerset)
May well be of Celtic origin, BUT lots of Cox's in my home city and somerset in general, also a few down in Cornwall (Kernow) I may not be a anglo saxon after all????? more celt then some in Cornwall ??????
Cool. Never knew it! :)
