Meaning of name MacKenzie:
The name Mckenzie is a variant of Mackenzie that originated from a Scottish distinguished surname, itself derived from the older Gaelic "MacCoinnich" (or son of Coinneach, also son of the 'bright one'). Coinneach was originally a personal name, an alias, coming from the Gaelic word meaning "attractive, good-looking." Although the Mackenzies have been a significant Scottish clan for over 700 years, the use of Mackenzie/Mckenzie as a given name is unique to North America.The given name MacKenzie has become popular only within the last few years. 30 years in the United States and Canada, originally among people of Scottish origin, but now part of a general trend, Mackenzie has been used as a personal name for boys and girls alike.
As natural adventurers, these personalities thrive on the new and unexpected and prefer to be constantly on the go. This makes them feel alive. They'll stir up some action if there isn't enough around, and they're inherent risk takers who enjoy pushing the envelope. Naturally rebellious, the Five personality is fearless and does not resist change. Travel and new experiences eat their souls. Five are very social and attract friends easily. People love to be around the fun-loving and exciting Five energy. This is also a lucky number in numerology (like Threes), so fortune seems to shine on them, aided by their own optimism and good nature.
MacKenzie (like Madison and Makayla) is part of a widespread American trend crazy about “M” names. American parents also like the use of androgynous-sounding surnames and first names by their daughters. Mckenzie is an example that illustrates a couple of different naming fads of the day. It is a modern invention and thus was not boiled down in religious history like most traditional names, but has retained some of that old Scottish Gaelic flavour. McKenzie followed Mackenzie into the US pop charts and first debuted in 1984. Helped by the popularity of the more commonly used Mackenzie, McKenzie has enjoyed a good ride up the charts. She never managed a spot on the Top 100 list of most favored girl names, but it seems to be a favorite spelling in the southern states. McKenzie is a Top 50 name in Louisiana, South Carolina, and Mississippi (based on 2010 data). It also does very well in West Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee.

my name is makensie.i love how my mom spelled it. is unique... kinda like me :)
hey:) my middle name is mackenzie! some people call me kenzie which is cute. i also know someones whose first name mackenzie and she gets called MACK....haha
It's my daughter's name - she's seven and people always say "I love that name". So far she's the only one in her'school with the name!
My husband says the'same thing about Mackenzie sounding like a last name and scratches it off of the "possible" names list EVERY time I put it on there! I don't know why I like the'same so much, but I do. I liked it before it boomed and became so popular, though. I guess now I should move on to another because it is so popular (even'though I would spell it without the C: Makenzie).
At first we didn't know what to think of the name,but it has grown on us and we are starting to like it.
My name is Mackenzie and i hate it, like every one else, when people spell Mackenzie with a capital K. Other than that i love the name.Everybody complements me on how pretty my name is!
well.....my names Kaela never met another Kaela......my friends spell it kayla and my teache's say (kay.E.la)
I really like the name Mackenzie, can you please suggest what nickname you love for this name? thanks!
My name is Mackenzie and i hate it, like every one else, when people spell Mackenzie with a cpital K. Other than that i love the name.Everybody complements me on how pretty my name is!
Mackenzie is such a weird and ugly name for a girl. It'sounds masculine and the'spelling is weird. I don't think Mackenzie,Mckenzie,Makenzie,Macenzie is an appropriate name for a female.Sorry,but I just don't like this name. I really can't beli've this name is becoming popular and I think people have been losing their taste in names.
My name is Mackenzie. (: I like it, It's definitely original. I like how It's masculine and feminine at the'same time. I'm a girl, by the way. haha. Usually my friends call me Kenzie. I absolutely CANNOT stand when people call me Mac though. :/ I was reading through the comments and It'seems like no one else likes being called Mack either. Huh. Anyways... My middle name is Taylor! So to the people who are looking for a decent middle name, Taylor is pretty good. :p I'mean, it has a nice ring to it. Mackenzie Taylor.
Mackenzie Bell is my daughters name. Bell is an old family name, prominent in the'south...and Mackenzie gives it a modern twist. We have affectionately nick-named her KENSINGTON! She has a very strong personality and a fierce presence. She definitely lives up to its meaning "fire born".
MY NAME IS MACKENZIE AND IM A GIRRRL. I LOVE MY NAME AND SO DOES EVERYONE ELSE. IT IS AN AMAZING NAME FOR A GIRL, JEEEZ. <3
I name is Mackenzie and I LOVE IT!!! Even'though a lot of people misspell it. I was named after Mackenzie street in st.louis,mo. Mainly because I was born three months early and my parents didn't have names picked out...so they picked the two first names of the intersection they where on the way to the hospital. Like I said I love my name and I have several nicknames Mack, Mack Attack, Kenzie, and Quenzly from when my brother in law was drunk and trying to say my name. And finally Kenzo Mackenzo. Surpringly there are quite a few Mackenzie in my home town. And we all love are name and its uniqueness.
Mackenzie Isn't cute or strong or anything for a boy. i would never name a boy mackenzie
It just sounds like an older person's name. It does not seem to fit a child when'they are an infant.
I love my name even'though its meant for a boy :) (and for some reason my parents spelled it 'McKenzie') its a very strong name, and you dont see too many people who have that name. it makes me feel unique :)
I named my daughter Mackenzie and we loved it from the moment we saw it. The only nickname we use so far (because she is only 5 weeks old )is MacKitty because sometimes when she cries It'sounds like a rrrreeeeooowwww.... Lol
My name is McKenzie. I was a '90 baby and i've noticed that a ton of kids that I help with in a third grade class, at least three of them have little sisters named in some form of mckenzie. I hate it when people call me MAC because there Isn't even an a in my name. I have also gotten alot of comments lately from work because i work with senior citizens and they tell me all the time that my name is pretty and ask me "is that irish?" i just laugh.
My daughters name is Mikenzie and we call her Miki.I have always loved this name, I hope she does too...
my names Mackenzie, (Muh-ken-zee) but its commonly misspelled "McKenzie" or MacKenzie." i know one girl with the name McKenzie, shes a year younger than me. The only problem i have with the name: the first time i ever met my friend jeff, he thought my LAST name was Mackenzie. i had to explain that it can be used as a first name also. he had a hard time grasping this.. im not sure why but he did.
My father named me McKenzie after his father, and his father was named MacKenzie after his grandfathers last name. I used to get upset about my name when I was little, because I always thought it was a boyish name, now I love it, and I'm proud that I was named such a great name!
My name is MacKenzie and people love my name,and so do I.I'm the only MacKenzie,Mckenzie,etc. in my school,and I'm in 6th grade!!none of my friends,well a couple,spell it right and my teache's NEVER get it right!!My bus driver calls me Maxine because she can't pronounce it right! It's kinda funny though.I only know one Mackenzie but she's in 9th grade.I love it when people call me Kenzie,Mac,Kenz.MacKenz,MacAttack,and Mac-n'-Che'se.Tootles!!
I think It's a great name, even for a girl. People use all sorts of names these days. Look at the actors Jacquin Pheonix, River Pheonix, and Summer Pheonix. Names are whatever you make them. I can't really see it as a boy's name, but that's my feeling.
I agree about the K thing i hate it when people do it to my name but living in the UK now i don't know any other mackenzies! and i've never found any thing with Mackenzie on it
Mackenzie is a beautiful name and I have named my daughter Mackenzie. It'suits her well.
I want to name my daughter that but I want to spell it Ma'Kenzie
my name is mackenzie and im a girll. its not always a boys name. i cant stand is when people call me mack though. it reminds me of a boys version of mackenzie. the girls names are shorten to kenzie or kenz..
Yy son is due on Nov18th his name will be Aiden Van. Van is his fathe's middle name, he will carry tOo.. :D
Perhaps named after Mackenzie Phillips became well known? Or Sean Astin's younger brother, also on tv? i've known young ladies that have thought of changing their names to this. Pretty good sound. Artistic.
my names mackenzie and i get called a bunch of nick names like mack,kenz,kenzie,macaroi and che'se,kenzie kenz,kendle,big mack,little mack and kenzie wenzie.
I named my daughter Makenzie I left the c out because my sister'said she did not like the name and she was going to call her Big Mac so I left the c out because of MAC it is Ma Kenzie but when she was born she'said she is a Makenzie I would not change the name it fits her you will know when she is born. Now my sister calls her Mac and Che'se regardless, because that's what she eats. Her full name is Makenzie Alexandria those were the two names I loved so I used both.
That's my name but is not how is spell it. I spellit makinsey. I was born is august the day after my mom was born. My middle name is Ann and I love my name and my friends call me Kenzie Kenzier or kenz. There are so many nick names my friends have for me It's kinda funny any ways I never met some one else named Mackenzie or the way I spell it (makinsey) but It's okay I like being uneek. Oh and I'm 14 year old.
My name is Mackenzie too.i hate it when people call me mac.I love zebras.I have 20animals as a pet.I am 10 but in 14 days is my birthday. Ihave a cat named noodle.my teacher always spells my name makenzie but it is Mackenzie.also she calls me the zebra lover because I love zebras. If your name is Mackenzie please email me I don't want to talk to hobos
When I picked this name for my son almost 6 years ago, I didn't think it would become so popular! I was using a baby name list from 2015, since I became pregnant in '04. The name wasn't even in'the top 100. I loved it because it was different. I have met a couple Brayden's, but mine is by far the cutest! His name fits him well! :)
I am planning on naming my 1st daughter Mackenzie i am so excited. i love the name ever'since i was an EMT i had to take alittle girl from LongIsland to Philly childrens hospital. she was a sweet happy little girl smiled the entire ride despite being ill. Baby mac on the way!
My pet peeve is boy names for girls. It leaves so few choices for boys, and embarrasses boys. I put a lot of thought into the meaning of a name, and find It'strange that all parents don't do the'same. Names that have Mc/Mac or Son in them are BOYS names. So I don't think girls should be called Mackenzie, McKenna, etc., which means "son of Kennedy," or names like Addison which means "son of Adam." *Kennedy, by the way, means "Ugly head" in Gaelic.
My name is mackenzie and I like it, but not the meaning.
what is the 'correct' spelling for the name pronounced eye-la?
i think It'snds more like a boys name than a girls name i am goin to call my son mackenzie
My son is called Mackenzie WillI'm and we call him Mack for short, it is a Scottish "male" name, I was very shocked to hear this is becoming popular for girls and to me It'sounds far to masculine!!
I LOVE MY NAME ITS JUST ITS A REALLY CUTE NAME FOR A CHILD OR TEENAGER BUT FOR AND ADULT ITS NOT REALLY FITTING BUT MY NAME TOTALY ROCKS I DONT NO ANYMORE Mckenzie's so its pretty cool being uniquce!!!
thinking of naming my baby boy makai bryden, does that'sound good?
Obviously my name is mackenzie and its a great name that has flare and awesomness to it. I was in 4th grade and i wanted to be called mack wost idea ever!!! now im call from fam and friends kenz or kenzie. Occasions will be called mack thugh. again unless ur a guy (im a girl) u will get made fun of (my experience). 4th grade was then'the worst year EVER 4 me!! :) to mackenzies
McKenzie is mostly a last name. but if you use it as a first name ,it does sound cute like a little girls name. A nick name would be -Kenzie or something like that. the name MCKenzie if not a last name is hardly ever used by boys in America. It really is used as a girls name that is consider a femine cute name.yes I know the orgin of it. but doesnt change the fact It'sounds like a cute girls name and mostly is used by cute little girls when used as a 1st name. Ive met many girls with the name McKenzie but would feel kind of sorry to name a boy a cutie name like that.
We named our daugher Hailey but pronounce it like Halle (Halle Berry) We thought the ail sound like in tail, mail would make people pronounce it like Halle. My husband came up with the'spelling. I wish we could change the'spelling because peope keep calling her Hayley. I guess if we changed the'spelling people might still mess it up anyway. What can ya do. We just people we pronounce it different.
Have to disagree. Mac- anything name for a girl sounds ridiculous to me and anyone else who knows origins and cultural backgrounds of names. It's a masculine prefix..period. Mackenzie absolutely is a great boy name and I always mentally roll my eyes when I hear of a girl with the name.
Just named my baby girl Mackenzie Rose. Everyone seems to love it!
i love the name mackenzie, its my middle name, my aunty calls me mac and i like that to hehe :) and i happen'to think that the downer with the very long post needs to stop looking at the glass as half empty
Our oldest son is named Mackenzie and it suits him perfectly. It's a great strong name with a lot of heritage and history behind it, and we definitely see it as a much better boys name, as anyone who researched names and meanings could see ;) We live in NY state and it's still a pretty rare name in our area. I think we only know of 2 boys and 2 girls with the name. Our son prefers to go by the full name Mackenzie so far and doesn't generally go by a nickname. Just of the top of my head some other better-known men named Mackenzie are: actors Mackenzie Astin and Mackenzie Crook, Canada's 5th Prime Minister Sir Mackenzie Bowell, and artist Mackenzie Thorpe.
My name is Mackenzie. My middle name is Ann. I love this name! There is many nicknames you can have with this name. My least favorite is mack. I do love Kenzie, and what my 2 year old niece calls me Nanni. I have liked Kenzie since my old gymnastics teacher called me that, i just loved the way It'sounded. i do love this name!
My daughter's name is McKenzie and we LOVE it!! Yes we call her mac n che'se and macdoodle and mac and kenzie and she loves her name! my aunt also calls her MZ for short. I couldn't imagine her name being anything else. She is a little green eyed red haired girl! :)
My baby girl is named Mackenzie after an old friend mine (Mckinzie). I'm helping her on a homework project about the meaning of her name. Because my last name is more know for a first name; I have always been'told "you have two first names." To end this joke I named all of my Children with name that are used for last names.
My name is Mackenzie. My parent's family thought they were crazy back in the early 80's for naming me that, but I honestly love it. It's so much more beautiful then any over used popular name. I love that my name is Mackenzie! Nicknames are fun too. Mack, Kenzie, Kenz... Mackster... haha just about everything!
I named my son Mackenzie in 2007, had I known of its popularity with little girls, perhaps I would have chosen differently. My son is now 17 and prefers to go by Mac.
I named my son Mackenzie because his dad's name is Mac and I when I found out Mackenzie meant son of Mac, I thought it was the perfect name for our son. He has embraced his name and is proud to be called Mackenzie or Kenzie for a nickname.
This is my name. Eveybody calls me alex. this one boy calls me Alexia. It is annoying. But other than that i LOOOOOVVVVVE my name. My parents were originally going to name me Samantha but i totally love my name alexis.
My name is MaKenzee Ashton. No one ever mispronounces it, but as you can'tell it is not the traditional, or classic spelling of the name (most commonly spelled: Mackenzie, Mckenzie etc;) but i've always LOVED my name. i've already met a few other people with the'same name, but for some reason I feel that the way I spell my name makes it unique. :)
My little sis's name is mackenzie. I love the way that it has the c because It'seems more filled out. I'v heard that people think that this name doesn't "fit" a child when'they are little but I disagree. While, the name may seem "big" when'they are little, it will "fit" as they grow older. In the mean time, the name can be shorted to Kenzie (like my sis) or Mac (like a girl i know from school) Unitl the name "fits". Regarding a nickname, if you use a funner nickname, Kenzie for example, you have the benifit of saying Mackenzie ---- -----!! When'they are in trouble, or even just their complete first name. Well that's all i have to say about the name "Mackenzie".
I LOVE Mackenzie. I think its a fun name! Trendy maybe....But Hey if the'shoe fits!
These pieces ralely set a standard in the industry.
My sons name is Mackenzie James and he was born in 2003. People have always commented on his name as being a very strong Male name. he's always been called Mack or Macka on the footy field and Mackenzie in his professional life. If anyone suggests that his name is a girls name, he just tells them the meaning of the name "Son of a King". If parents want to call a girl by a boys name that their prerogative.
My name is Mackenzie and i am a girl..i never knew Mackenzie was usted as a boys namr
When my mother was pregnant with me, she fell in a snow bank by the Makenzie river during a road trip. Thinking it was a sign, because the river is one of the strongest wild and free waterfronts in the north, she thought her child should be the the same. My dad`s bad spelling is why there`s no C oppose to everyone else's. But I absolutely love the name! When I was younger It was hard because everyone had the same names (emily, kayla, ect.) and I was always an outsider. I stumbled on the site and it`s just nice to know theres lots of Makenzies out there, and it`s cool because the name sets us apart
My name is also, Mackenzie. Alot of people think my name is unique-and i love it! Mostly all of my friends call me kenzie, and my sister calls me mackenz.
i like the name mackenzie. it is a unique name, but it certainly is not unattractive. It'sort of reminds me of the name makenna, or macaila, names which i like as well. i would definetly consider naming my baby girl this :)
i spell my name mackenzie my middle name is brooke i love my name oh and i hate when people call me big mac it just gets on my nerves
I'm from Mexico and I had never heard the name Mackenzie until about three years ago when one of my cousins friend told my sister and I that her daughters name was Mackenzie. At first we were a little confused because we thought it was a last name, and thought It'sounded a little funny. Now I just love the name..It's beautiful.. and that's what I'm going to name my daughter!!!
We named our daughter Macy (2/06). I love the name. Not a real common name, although I am noticing it more--unfortunately. Macy Catherine---I love it!
My name is Mackenzie Rose. I think my name is great. I go by Kenzie or Kenz most of the time ,but family and old friends still call me Mack, or Macky sometimes. I use to like being call Mack when I was little ,but then someone referred to me as a "Mack truck" and i've hated It'since. Mac 'n' che'se is an old nickname I don't go by anymore. And Starbucks will never get it right but I can't blame them my own grandparents can't seem to get it either. I'm not a big fan of the meaning because I'm a girl and all but what can I do about it.
my little girl is called Mackenzie kelly we shorten her name to mack or kenzie lol or we call her mackenzie kelly.
I dunno about you guys but I am a girl and named Mackenzie but I adore Mack! It really bothe's me when people call me Mackenzie, people haven't called me that'since I was REALLY little. It is sad though because I use Mack as my real name, and I want a nick name...but there are no nick names for Mack that I like. I am thinking about Mack Attack for the back of my lax sweatshirt though...
My Name is Mackenzie, but I go by Mac. I have a lot of other nicknames but I like getting caclled mac.
The'surname of American actor John Wayne (formerly Marion Michael Morrison) and of the fictional Bruce Wayne, alter-ego of Batman. Though this is no longer in fashion as a male name, it does sound innovative when used for a girl, in part as an alternative to the totally outmoded Jayne, a Fifties relic which is stuck in the Jayne Mansfield era.
hello, my name is mackenzie and acording to my dad...mac means child of and kenzie was a leader of a Scotish clan.
I have named my son a version of this name but with a twist, his name is MCkensley, there is no meaning but it is a combo of Mckinley and Mckenzie. He loves his name and so do the Girls, hi nickname is Mac
I'm a male with the name Mackenzie living in the U.S. I always get weird looks from substitute teache's when'they call out attendance and I raise my hand. Sometimes I get the question, "You're Mackenzie?" as if it were unbelievable or something. And sometimes people call me "Kenzie" to be patronizing. I know how to deal with it now, but if you live in the U.S. and are considering naming your son Mackenzie, be prepared for the ignorant remarks like, "Mackenzie's a GIRL'S name", and the whole social stI'ma that comes from it. But I do feel rather unique, its better than Michael, James, Benjamin, or other way too common male names.
Haha, sholdun't you be charging for that kind of knowledge?!
My 2 year old daughters name is Mikenzi and I think it is a GREAT name! We call her Kenzi for short and her Nana calls her Kenzerdoodle!!
my son is called this - we're scottish def more of a boys name here....
My little cousins name and we call him kenz and sometimes kenzie and it a wicked name
My name is Mackenzie, and i've always loved it! i've been called everything from lyndsey to kissy, but I think It's funny. When I was younger, the only other Mackenzie I ever knew was a boy, now It's definitely more of a girls name. I used to love the uniqueness of my name, but It's becoming quite popular.
My name is Mackenzie, and it is amazing to have, people often compliment me on it. It is common enough that everyone will know how to pronounce it, and uncommon enough that you will rarely run into someone with your name. I have only met 3 people with the'same name. There is thousands of unique nicknames I have, and It's amazing. However, my one warning is that people will mistakenly capitalize the "K" in "Mackenzie". But, don't let that'stop you from naming your child Mackenzie. It is fun and meaningful. I strongly suggest the name.
I'm goin to name me baby mikensie my due date is nov 25 2020. And I never known of any boys named makensie I really don't think It'sounds good for a boy !
I'm considering Mackenzie spelled Mackynzie for my little girl who is due October 1st! This is such a pretty name.
I named my son Mackenzie and we have had problems with othe's saying it is a girl's name'since he was in the hospital after birth. The nurses put a pink hat on him in the nursery (unintentionally) and teacher's and kids always make some comment about how his name is a girl's name. I get so annoyed trying to educate othe's that his name is originally a MALE surname and that it was traditionally a MALE name until Mackenzie Phillips hit the'scene. We call our Mackenzie "Mack" but when he was little his nickname was "Kenzie."
One of our son's longtime friends is a boy named Mackenzie and It's a great name for a boy! he's a great kid and the name matches his loyal, strong and charming personality. Love it for a boy, not for a girl.
My close friend has the name Mackenzie and he is a boy and I know quite a few girls with this name but i know of none (except his) that are to be boys. I think it is a wonderfull name for either Boy or Girl, and I can't picture my friend Mackenzie with any other name. It'suits him well. I'm sure it would suit anyone.
I have been bemused by the use of MacKenzie for girls. The names means 'son of a wize ruler'. 'NicKenzie' is the feminine form.
My name is MacKenzie Wynell and i am not really happy that i have a old lady-ish name...sometimes people call me kenz or kenzie, but at my school there is 5 other girls with this name and we all spell it differently...I am the only one though that will have the teache's call me MacKenzie instead of Kenzie...It is initially a very cute name but the middle name Wynell is not recommended because people will make fun of it...
my names makenzie. i spell it makenzie. everyone spells it mckenzie. i think my names is pretty popular. its cute though. i didnt know it was a boys name though.
my name is mckenzie and i love it. i am a girl so if you are thinking about it for a guy dont do it. this name has gotten a lot more feminene over the years.
HI'my maiden name was mackenzie and so I decided to give this name to my son, thinking it very unusual. I have since found out that it is certainly getting more and more popular.
My name is Makenzi. People spell my name wrong all the time...even my own family.Everybody always asumes that its spelled Mackenzie...when i was younger my grandparents used to call me Mac. i hated that because my name wasnt even spelled Mac...etc!! But i've grown to love my name.
Kenzie Taylor is what I named my dog. I wanted my granddaughter named that but I only have grandsons. Everyone tells me it is a cute name. I have heard of a few Kenzie's but not many. Most people misspell it too.
I am planning on naming my son Mackenzie because I feel as if it is a very strong boys name. We are planning to have Kenny as a nick name.
MOst people do NOT know how to spell the name. I have gotten Mckenzy before and many othe's that are not even close but most people forget the 'a' at the beggining..... Still chose to name your girl this though... :-)
My name is MacKenzie,i love it because people always spell it wrong...plus i have a lot of nick names generated from my unusual and unique name'such as Mac,Kenz Maccadoo,and Kenzie. i've met plenty of Mackenzie's in my life...yeah i have a little cousin named Mackenzie...but yeah i love my name
my name to my computer teacher is makenly but my name is mackenzie it is often spelled wrong or said wrong my friends make up nicknames 4 me like makena makenly zee zee mack ken kenzie kenz some names its ok for people to call me but some sound redickulas Inever'seen or talked to another mackenzie before
I like the name Mackenzie because it is my name! And yes i am a female. I have not met any boys named mackenzie but i have met many girls named that. Some spell it Makenzie or Mckenzie or McKenzie or even Mcknzy....so i really think this name is cool.
My daughter will be named MacKenzie when she is born in September. It is a beautiful name, and a nod to our irish heritage.
I named my daughter MacKenzie, and it is always well received. She is Kenzie, Mac or Mackey. She loves her name. It is a strong name for my strong young lady.
I spell my name MacKenzie. It was my great grandmother's maiden name, and I like the origin behind it. I love being Scottish, and I like the nicknames that generate from it. Mac, Kenzie, Mackenz, Kenz, Kensington, Mackie... many possibilities. It's long, though, so if you have a long last name you might want to think twice. That's why my middle name is Joy. Short, sweet, and to the point. Howvever, I think It's a terrible boys name, but that's just me.
Don't people care about the meaning of names anymore? Why do people name their baby'something just because it "sounds cute?" That's very superficial! The name is a SURNAME, people! a SURNAME!! It means SON of Kenzie. Not only that, but its too trendy as a girl's name anyways. What is this trend with giving girls surnames as given names? It's ANNOYING. It's appropriate for dogs, maybe, but not people. The name Mac means SON OF. How many of you out there would name your daughter "Sonofkenzie?" Wel that's what You're doing. This surname-as-a-girls-name is going to go down n history as a horrible trend, like lava lamps, bellbottoms, and flock of seagulls hair. You're going to be so embarrassed.. please put some THOUGHT in your baby names, please! Do it for society! No more Mackenzie, Madison, Taylor, Bailey, or any other'surnames..PLEASEEEEEEEEE
Our son is named Mackenzie, and he'says he doesn't get picked on at all for it. he's grown up with all the'same kids in school and It's just never been an issue. We picked the name with love and still love it for a boy only. Seems silly when people give the name to girls, and I always wonder if they researched the meaning or thought about the origin at all when'they came up with it. We love it as a boys name (and so does our son).
Hi, my name is McKenzie. I know plenty of girls with the name McKenzie. Spelt either McKenzie or Mackenzie. Either way, i have only seen it on girls. i not sayin that It's wierd, but it is def. unique for a guy. Older people always think that it is my mom's or relative's last name. I am just now starting to see it commonly used as a first name, but hey i don't care cuz McKenzie is unique and beautiful/handsome.
my name is mackenzie and i love it! my friends call me mac and che's, mac, kenzie, and macavillie.
I love the name Mackenzie because it is so unique. I think It's good for kids, teens and adults.
My 3 year old daughter's name is Mackenzie Nicole. We call her Kenzie... We NEVER call her Mac! Most people spell it wrong (McKenzie)We love the name!
I like this name a lot for boys as it really is a boy name meaning "son of the wise ruler" (and any Mac- names mean "son of..") but I don't like Mac- names given'to girls.
My name is Mackenzie, and i am a male. Of course people tease me about it all the time but who cares! I am the only male i know named Mackenzie and I wouldnt want to be called anything else. Im glad i dont have a predictable guys name because i am definately not a predictable person!
my name is Mackenzie Paige Campbell. everyone calls me kenzie mack(: i love it!
I really love this as a boy's name! Would love to see it more often for boys. Also love Mackenzie James as a first name/middle name combo.
We named our daughter MacKenzie! We call her Mac, MacKadoodle,MacAttack, Makenz. She loves her name!
my names Mackenzie and i always get bugged because most people think its a girls name, but in actual fact it originated as a boys name and then later on became a girls name too. Mackenzie means "SON of the wise ruler" not daughter, not that girls cant have that name. Thats fine with me I just want to tell people its a boys name too.
We named our daughter Mackenzie Nicole in Oct. 96. It was rarely heard then. Everyone asked is that a family name? We would reply with no we just like it. Now days you hear the name Mackenzie everywhere you go! My husband and I like different names. We also have a daughter, Reagan Skylar born Jan. 01. I'm wondering if her name will grow to be as popular as Mackenzie's did.
I have seen my name'spelled "MCkensiie" by some of my teache's. they also think that its my last name, and Connor is my first
Our son is named Mackenzie WillI'm ! When I first heard it I thought It'sounded very masculine . We found the name from a picture in a hospital with a boy Mackenzie in it and as we liked the name Mac we thought it would give fullness to that name . I actually had never heard of the girl called Mackenzie until a few years later as we had only put it with a bloke I played football with had the name .
my name is mackenzie and i have always loved that it was different from the common "ashleys" and "jessicas". although i do get excited when i hear a little girl with my name, It'sometimes concer's me that it is becoming too common.
Hey well for starters my first name is Mackenzie but people often spell it wrong. Also I'm a girl and i know a LOT more boys with the'same name.
My Daughters name is McKenzie, I didnt spell it Mackenzie because I def didnt want her to be called Mac, I went to school with a Mack and he was a boy, we call her Kenzie. granted everything at the'store is spelled MacKenzie I'm def fine with it. :)
My little girl's name is Mackenzie. I chose this name b/c to me it Isn't that common to me, but it is tooo cute! We call her all types of thingS for nicknames... Mac, Mackey, Kenz and Kenzie. As she gets older her name really fits her personality.
WHY DO I THINK THAT EVERYONE HERE THAT COMMETED IS CALLED ANNIE? PS IM CALLED ANNIE TOO... XD
my name is mackenzie. my friends call me kenziekenz or kenzie or kenz. i sometimes like my name and other times i dont. i hate it when people think its my second name. i also hate it when people tell me its a boys name. but only some people call me mackenzie. most people know me as kenzie. my teache's and my friends call me kenzie. when i introduce myself now i introduce mysel as kenzie.
My baby girl's name is Mackennzie. I love different spellings of names than the norm.
I love the name Mackenzie. It is my middle name. People usually misspell it. I have only met a few people with the first name Mackenzie. My friends usually call me "kenzie" or "mac".
My 9 year old daughter's name is Mackenzie Nicole, and even'though I had her name picked out long before she came along, I still cannot think of a name that better'suits her. She is the only Mackenzie in her grade, on her'soccer team, and in her dance classes, so I think I chose something both unique and beautiful to capture my child. When she was a baby, I called her Kenzie Doodle, which my father'still calls her. Most people call her Kenzie, but my fiancee calls her Mac, and It'seems like he is the only person allowed to use it. Now that'she is older, I find myself having to use her full name to get her attention!!!
Twelve yrs ago we named our daughter MeKenzie, I spelled it this way because i didnt want anyone to call her Mac. She pretty much gets Kenzie all the time anyway but I haven't seen it spelled this way anywhere.
We named our son Nash because it was different. He is and has always been'the only Nash at school. His name is Nash Austin
My name is Mackenzie, and I am female. My name means fire-born & fair one, and I am pround of my name. People often spell my name wrong, as their are numerous spellings. They normaly spell it 'Makenzie'. i've met only a few people with my name. My name is pronounced Mah-Ken-Zee. Some nicknames include: Mac, Kensi, Zee, Zee-Zee, Kinny (as i dislike kenny), Em, Emzy, and Kenz.
My name is Mackenzie and im a girl .. I'met i a boy mackenzie when i was in 1st grade .. then i never met another person with that name until this year ther's 5 mackenzies at my school .. we're all girls and we spell it all Mackenzie and people always capitolize the K which is retarted and when I'meet someone new im like 'Hi im Mackenzie!' and they give me a reallyyyy weird look and theyre like 'Um .. thats your FIRST name?!??!?1?!?!?' and they think im crazy. i hate it. but i looooooove my name now. its amazingly cool. its unique but common at the'same time.
Horrid. This and Madison both. Respectable as surnames, but downright bizarre as a first name on a female of any age. Just awful. Trying to decipher'some of the previous comments doesn't sweeten'the pot one bit.
My name is McKenzie and i HAVE met a boy namend MacKenzie, but he goes by Mac. Naturally, i can't stand being called Mac because it makes me feel like a boy. I love how there's so many different ways to spell it! from starbucks coffee cups i've gotten MaQuensy, McCinzy, and everything in between.
hey yall! my names Mackenzie. im 13 years old, and ive only met 1 person with tht same name. i have a really cool nickname by one of my freinds: its lil miss kenzieeboo. i lke the extra e on the end it just looks cool
I want to name my daughter Mackenzie after the Mackenzie River in Montana. To me Mackenzie means brave, fierce, and fast like the Mackenzie River <3333
Well my name is Maggie. Everyone thinks that it is short for magaret or sometimes even magpie, but its just Maggie! it i so frustrating when people don't beleive me too!
Hi, We named our daughter Mackenzie, and I love it..It's a nice strong name and I can't imagine calling her anything else. I'must say that I also like the alternate spelling MaKenzy, as a previous person posted. We haven't shortened it to a nickname..however, her grandfather calls her Kenzie...personally I don't want my daughter nicknamed Mac... and I would never call my daughter Mac and Che'se..I don't capitalize the k..and some people get that part of the'spelling incorrect..
Really like it for boys. Not so crazy about it for girls, doesn't really make sense. Our son is due in a couple months and we're naming him Mackenzie James.
Hi! I am a Mackenzie! I used to HATE my name,but I grew to love it! It is the most unique name there is in my state! I am the only one who has it, I only know one other: Mackenzie Philips ( the actress). A lot of my teache's and friends misspell it, my close friends are addicted to it, and whenever they speak to me they say it, for example: "Mackenzie,i've the'same shirt" or "Mackenzie, I love my math teacher!" its pretty funny. I love my nickname most though, Kenzie, or kenz, or some spell kenzie like kenzii. the double "i" thing looks cute ,and unique. Since my name is 9 letters long, on school lists, they put my name as "Kenz" which cracks me up. I say named your child Mackenzie! I get compliments a lot! It also increases how much people like you, good way to suck up to bosses, haha.
I am a girl and alot of times people tend to spell my name wrong. There seem to be more younger girls with my name. I have never met a boy named Mackenzie.
My name is Mackenzie.. I am 15 years old and i havent met anyone with the'same spelling as me! I love my name because there is so many different nicknames that follow it. I have a best friend name kenzi so people have just changed my name and thats how everyone spells my name now! I have been called kenzi kinser (like steve kinser) macoroni.. uh big mac, kenz, mac, so many different names. If your looking for a middle name! ROSE is a great one. Mackenzie Rose is my name and i dont understand why someone wouldn't like it. hehe <3
My name I'mackenzie and people call me mackie or mackie dee. i like the name it just irritates me when people reffer me to mcdonalds at school appart frm tat ts all good.
Never heard of MacKenzie being a boy's name until today. Found out that it is orginally a "boys" name. Very inter'sting, but kindof hard to get used to since I know girls named MacKenzie.
WHILE I THINK THA NAME IS THA BEST BECAUSE It's MY NAME AND It's SPELLED IESHIA SOME PEOPLE SPELL IT IESHA
MacKenzie means "son of the wise king". Mac is the gaelic word for son so yes it is supposed to be a boys name. Just unknowing American mother follow trends without doing their homework. Whats truly sad are the baby books that'say it means "child of a wise ruler". So very politically INCORRECT.
Hey, Kenz or Kenzie. I'm glad you guys met each other. Do you guys also go to yoga classes and get your nails painted together? How many pints of Danon Yogurt do you consume together? Do you also got brothe's named Cooper, Conner, Jackson, Hunter, and Wilson?
My name is Mackenzie! I am really happy with the name. Even'though I am a 12 year old, people make fun of me just because of my name. But, that doesn't bother me anymore, because I realized that people have their own opinions, and their just big bullies. But all that really matters is that you beli've in yourself, please don't let anyone bully you just because of your name!
My daughters name is Mackenzie. We call her Kenzie. Great name! People often misspell it like, McKenzie, which is more like a last name.
It is the best name ever! I don't care if people hate it because that's their problam! XD
My name is McKenzie but I go by Kenzie all the time. I only get called mac by like two people because i dont spell it Mackenzie. I know a boy that spells its Mackenzie though and he goes by Mack. :)
Hey! My name Mackenzie, and my teache's on my first few years of school spell my name McKenzie! Also my parents thought of Mckena, but switched to Mackenzie. And people at school call me mac or mac & che'se! You pronounce it mac-en-zie. Some kids in my class spell it Mckenzie. They're close, but It's still spelled wrong. In my life i've only met 1 Mackenzie, but it was spelled McKenzie.
lovely original name gonna keep it in mind for my son
My name is MaKenzy. I love the way it is spelled everyone spells mck or mack or mac. It's different! My friends and family call me Kenz or Kenzy.
I like the name Mackenzie some times ,but peole try to twist the name to mac or mac and che'se.It gets anoying some time and I dont like it.
The only real error in spelling of adrien is people spell it adrian. the way I pronounce it is: A-Dree-En. I have n't met any body else with the'same spelling.
I love my name its amazing...thats all i can say and its so unique like no one has it. Even'though its like 9 letters its not a bother to rihgt I'mean M-A-C-K-E-N-Z-I-E its beutiful!
My daughters name is Mackenzie Paige... Love it...
I JUST DON'T LIKE IT AT ALL, It'sOUNDS LIKE A CABBAGE PATCH KIDS NAME OR SOME KIND OF UGLY, FRECKLE FACED DOLL. NOT AT ALL FEM, SORRY.
We named our son Madison because the name itself means "Son of the mighty warrior" and when my husband was looking for names online, he also found it to mean "Son of Matthew" which of course he liked because his name is Matthew LOL
We named our son Mackenzie and so far he's still happy with it. I even asked him once if he ever felt like he'd like to change it and he'said "Nope, I like it. It's unique." He goes by the full version of the name without using a nickname, so we've had a good experience with Mackenzie as a boy's name. Still love it :)
I'm pregnant and I'm going to name my daughter Mackenzie Rae. I love the name...I think It's adorable! I don't want to give my daughter a "regular" name like Jennifer, Stephanie, etc. No offense to anyone named that! I just want something a little more unique... I would laugh if I ever'saw a boy names Mackenzie. I don't know why anyone would do that to their child! It I'mediatley sounds like a girls name! Well, i love it :) Hopefully my daughter will too!
This is my daughter's name - so, of course I love it! Her name is spelled Liah, and pronounced Lee-ah. I had a hard time deciding whether or not to add the "h" to the end. We call her Liah-Biah a lot. :) I still love the name as much as I did when I chose it nine years ago.
welll i kust want to say that my name is yamilex nad I'm happy to know that I'm not the only girl in the united states .
i can seriously relate. everyone can pronounce the name, It's easy enough but all of the misspellings is enough to drive any one INSANE! the one i have the most experience in is the missing 'A', people in my city normally leave the 'k' alone. but i find my name constantly being spelled Mckenzie. It's annoying.
I named my daughter Mackenzie back in 2002 and no one else had the name. I loved it because it was unique and beautiful. Now it has become too popular and the "capital k" misspelling drives me crazy. I always tell people "the k is NOT capital, just like any other normal name."
My name is Mackenzie and I love it. Although most people hate being called Mack i love it. I think Mackenzie is becoming more popular but i only know 1 other Mackenzie and she goes by Kenzie so nobody gets us mixed up.
Mackenzie was my grandmother's last name and I wanted to name my daughter after her. Plus, it is really cute! I didn't want to use other'spellings because I thought it would be difficult having capital letters in the middle of her 1st name. I hope nobody calls her Mac. (she is due in 5 weeks) My husband has already started calling her Kenzie.
I named my 4th child, a beautiful daughter, Mackenzie in 2011. We call her Kenzie. I always thought we would call her Mac...as that is a family name on my mother's side....but it just didn't fit! Kenzie is one of the 4 lights of my life....
My daughter name is MaKenzie. My husband refused to spell it "MacKenzie"; which a lot of people assume is the way It's spelled. During my research of the name It's spelled a ton of different ways. It's such a beautiful name; which is becoming very popular. My daughter is often called Kenzi, Zee Zee or MaKayKay! MaKenzie Lee is her name!
Oh my gosh!!! Whoever left the message on September 21,2020... OH MY GOSH MY NAME IS MACKENZIE AND MY MIDDLE NAME IS TAYLOR! NO JOKE I SWEAR IT IS! HAHA EVERYONE CALLS ME KENZIE THO TO! I DONT KNOW IF I WROTE THAT MESSAGE AWHILE AGO BUT THEY USED SOME BIG WORDS SO I DONT THINK SO. BUT AAHHH THATS MY NAME, MACKENZIE TAYLOR! WE SHARE The'sAME NAME AND MIDDLE NAME HAHA THATS SOOO COOL:D
My name is Mackenzie. I am the only one in my entire middle school with the name of Mackenzie.
My name is Mackenzie and everyone spells my name wrong except family and friends its frustrating having to explain to everyone how its spelt but its ok i guess i've only met one other person that has the name'spelled like mine but i loveeeee my name bcuz not many people have it people call me Mac, Kenz, Kenzie, and Mackenz
Sounds like a beautiful blonde confident girl. I absolutely love it!!
My sons name is MacKenzie I named him that being the meaning of it is Son of Kenneth. Well my husbands name is Kenneth to me that really means something and my husband is from an Irish background.
well jeez. my name is MacKenzie im a GIRL where i got it from, i am not sure but yet i do not think that this name should be catorgorized as a "baby boys" name. I do like my name i find it unique. not to many people had it when i was born but the name grew and more and more parents named their children MacKenzie, even many girls spell their names this way. but each to their own, the name is still the beautifull name... MacKenzie.
I love the name mackenzie,It's an awesome name.lots of people comment me saying "that name is beautiful",or "that's such a pretty name"!lots of people spell my name Makenzie or Makenzi or just plain wrong-Mkenzi or Mcenzi!I hate it when people call me Mac.It drives me insane!Kenzie or Kenz is for short!My aunts' call me Mac-A-Doodle.It's ok but still.It's funny because I have friend named Mackenzie and we go through the exact problem.We both love the'same colors and have a NINTENDO DS!Cool right!I am 9 and I hope you like my letter.
My name is Mackenzie and I like it. It means "fire-born" or "good looking" as far as I know. It's weird because my sisters name means "of the'sea"! I love my name and everyone calls me Mac. It's cute because when you get older it won't sound too little kid-ish like Suzy. But, It'still doesn't sound too grandma-ish like Eunice or Harriet. Plus, you can get lots of cute nicknames. =D Luv my name!
It is my daughters name; she will be one this month. People frequently misspell it McKenzie and it has gotten surprisingly popular in just the last year. I guess I contributed to that though, so I can't complain.
At first we were not sure but after 6 months her grama and I have fllin deeply in love with this little girl.
Times when Alfred Hitchcock showed his infamous side, but he wasn't the only one who ruined this terminally old-fashioned grandad name. The creator of the 'Batman' comic strips, Bob Kane, gave the name Alfred to Batman's (or Bruce Wayne's) elderly manservant butler, which a lot of people have associated the name with over the years. Personally, the name is in'the'same category as Albert, Leonard, Percy, Norman, Frank, Horace, and Arthur.
Anybody who uses this is a forename'should be shot. No forename'should ever have a Mc or Mac prefix. Anybody who calls a child such is an idiot.
my name is mckenzee, yes i spell it different. I have grown to love the name mckenzee. i have a lot of different nicknames, like mack, mac, kenzi, kenze bear, kay, mz, mckk, and ruthie form 7th heaven becuas ethe girl ruthies real name is mackenzie rosman
First granddaughter born last evening - Mackenzie Taylor. The name has a great ring to it!
I absolutley love the name Mackenzie. I get the point where it does sort of seem like a childish name when you grow up but that doesn't mean It's not a beautiful name. There is a girl in my class named Mackenzie and I think it fits perfectly. As long as you like the name I would choose it for my daughter's name considering my name is Mackenzie...lol.
My name is Mackenzie. It's never misprounced, but since there are so many spellings it often gets mispelled. My name is said, "Mah-ken-zee". I'meet very few people with my name. Nicknames: Mac, Kensi, Kenz, Kenni, Kinni, Zee, ect.
