- Named for Harold Knox-Shaw (1885-1970), a British astronomer.
- This name was introduced on LTO-63C1 (for which it served as the chart title). The map does not indicate if it replaced a former lettered crater designation, but it is clear this was Banachiewicz F in the System of Lunar Craters. Knox-Shaw appears in the cumulative list of approved names in IAU Transactions XVB (1973). Since it does not appear in any prior IAU Transactions, it was probably approved at the 1973 meeting. Biographical information was unofficially reported in Ashbrook, 1974. - Jim Mosher
