The name Enoch is mentioned in the bible as a major figure in the Old Testament and was the son of Jarod, the father of Methuselah and the great-grandfather of Noah (who has a book, the Book of Enoch, that is important to the Jewish mysticism) and there also happens to another Enoch in the Bible that is the son of Cain. This might have been where the initial popularity of the name came from, it was just outside the top 200 in 1800, at #202 with 60 boys given the name. On the charts, this was its peak.

Overall, this name is a winner in my opinion and with the fantasic nickname 'Nucky' attached to it, I can see it quite at home with other vintage names such as Edith and Wallis.
