  • "My name is Mackenzie and I LOVE it! It's very unique and I don't run into many people that share my name. I love all the crazy nicknames people come up for me. I recently started calling myself Mack because a lot of people seem to not understand what I saying in crowded areas, so it's just easier and quicker to say Mack. The only thing I don't like is how many different ways you can spell it. My name always seems to be misspelled on name cards or anything like that. Oh well.. its an awesome name! Mackenzie's UNITE :)" Nov. 16, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "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." Jan. 20, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is McKenzie. It's spelled a bit differently but I love it all the same. The weirdest thing is I am actually Irish and a few of my friends find it funny but I have had a plaque on my wall for as long as I can remember and it says "McKenzie, intelligent wise leader (Irish Gaelic)" I wouldn't trade my name for any other. I know that it started off as a boys name but does it really matter what your named? I have only met one other Mackenzie and I feel like I am one of the nicer ones. I know every name has the mean ones and the nice ones but I fell on the good side. I feel like other girls hear my name and ask if I'm a preppy mean girl. And I have been called that but then I talk to them and prove them wrong. I feel anyone named anything around McKenzie has the power to be who he or she likes. Your name is just a name not a title."

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. :)" May. 31, 2014: Report as inappropriate

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".

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.

  • "My name is MacKenzie...its spelt a little differently than most Mackenzie names. I was born in 1989 and was the only MacKenzie in the school until I hit middle school. There were a few there. Now its really popular among those who are younger than me. It used to be a special name..now its becoming a normal one. I kind of dont like how popular its becoming."

  • "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!!!" Nov. 27, 2007: Report as inappropriate

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."

  • "I have a bit of a problem with the name being used as a girls name. Whichever way you look at it, Mac is Celtic for 'Son of' and Kenzie is from the Celtic, Kenneth, which means 'The Handsome One'- Hence Son of The Handsome One, for a girl????" Oct. 18, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Makenzie. Her dad and I chose this name because we liked the way it sounds. For a nickname, I now call her Maky Bear or Kenzie Bear. EVeryone else calls her Kenzie. Her dad chose the spelling because we never knew of anyone named Makenzie with that spelling and he wanted her to be "different". Well she's diffferent alright, I cant find anything with her name spelled the way we spell it. but i guess thats what I get for spellingit that way. I love my daughter's name and I wouldnt change it even if I had the chance." Sep. 13, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is MacKenzie and growing up I never knew of another child with my name. I wasn't very fond of it when I was little but know at age 22 I like it. At the present moment I know of two other Mackenzie's and thats it. When I often introduce myself peopole ask if MacKenzie is my last name and then I have to give them my full name which is MacKenzie Dodson. I don't like the nick name Mac..eww! Most of my friends call me Kenzie or Kenz for short. All in all its a good name :)" Sep. 5, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am going to have a baby in Feb. If it is a girl I will name it Makenzie. I also will leave out the "c" to hopefully avoid nicknames. I also did this with my first daughter, Makaila. No Mik because of Mickey, no Makay- because of Kay or Kayla. A child's name is part of its identity, to me there should be no nicknames unless the parents specify this at infancy."

  • "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 teachers 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." Jul. 1, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "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)." May. 14, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "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. 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!" Jan. 5, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "People don't pronounce the name wrong, they just have no idea on how to spell. I kid you not, one day someone wrote me a note and on the front it said, "To: Makinsi". I've noticed that many children are named Mackenzie now. My parents named me Mackenzie because it was unusual yet beautiful at the same time. It's easy to find gifts and things with the name on it, but most of the time you wouldn't want to buy them anyways." Jun. 1, 2005: Report as inappropriate
