"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:
"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:
"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." May. 7, 2015:
"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." Jun. 12, 2014:
"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. :)" May. 31, 2014:
"I dunno about you guys but I am a girl and named Mackenzie but I adore Mack! It really bothers 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..." Mar. 20, 2013:

"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' cheese 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." Nov. 28, 2011:

"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 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!!!" May. 10, 2010:
"My name is Mackenzie, but I absolutely hate the nickname Mac or Mack or Mackie Dee or any of those stupid ones. My name is Mackenzie or Kenz or Kenzie, but I don't want to be related to very large semis or some fast food chain.

I absolutely LOVE my name because it's unique and no one knows how to spell it. I like that because I can bet someone $5 to spell my name correctly and everyone always gets it wrong! I'ma rich Mackennziee!" Apr. 4, 2010:
"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.

"Hey! My name Mackenzie, and my teachers 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 & cheese! 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." Feb. 22, 2010:

"My name is Mackenzie and I love it...Its so unique and explains me so well. Through my years ive only met 5 other people with the name Mackenzie. Though everyone else spells it either "Makenzie" or "Makenzi" and even "McKenzie". People are always spelling my name wrong because there are 2 other Mackenzie's in my grade with two different spellings so they are always screwing it up which doesnt bother me that much. Some nicknames I have been given are Kenzie,Ken,Kenz,Big Mac, and Mac Dog. I absolutely hate being called Mackenz and Mac or Mac n Cheese. All my friends and family call me Kenzie, which I like and am thinking about having everyone at school, like teachers, call me Kenzie instead of Mackenzie." Dec. 18, 2009:

"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." Sep. 23, 2009:

"I used to dislike my name because it was too long, and nobody had it, but then I grew into it, and now I love it because it's not as common as some others.

"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"." Apr. 22, 2009:
"Love the name. For the person who has such a problem with it's meaning ("son of") how about getting your facts straight. There are multiple meanings, as there are for many words in this great big world of ours!! The Irish/Gaelic meaning is "fire-born." For us, since we are expecting a baby girl in August and my husband is a firefighter/paramedic . . .we think it's great. Try looking up other words, in the English language or others, and see how many different meanings there are for the same or similar words. Then, get a life!" Apr. 7, 2009:
"my name is Mackenzie and i love it because people aslways miss the A in my name and capitalize the K which pisses me off but oh well. My friends call me Macca and my parents used to call me Zie they are both cool because no one else gets called that and i have only ever met one other Mackenzie in my life." Mar. 7, 2009:
"My name is Mackenzie and I really enjoy the name. People can never spell it right, but it is fun for me now to see how people spell it. A lot of the time I get McKenzie, Mkenzie, Mcenzie, Mkensi, and Makenzi. When people spell it wrong it gets annoying, but teachers and classmates spell it right which is helpful. I have always liked the name and am glad that not many people have the same name. I like the way that I spell it and I get a range of nicknames; kenzie, mack, kenziedoodle, curly, macurly, sherly and all other fun ones. I have never been called Mack & Cheese, if someone called me that I think it would drive me up the wall!" Mar. 7, 2009:
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 Cheese..I don't capitalize the k..and some people get that part of the spelling incorrect.." Feb. 18, 2009:
"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." Jan. 23, 2009:
"I have a daughter called Mackenzie. She was named for her much beloved and sadly missed Scottish paternal grandfather who she unfortunately will never have the opportunity to meet. McKenzie was her grandfather's clan and many of the family ,including him, have McKenzie as a middle name. We shorten it to Maisie, which suits her well (she's 3) and she can decided what she prefers to be known as when the time comes." Jan. 14, 2009:
"My daughter's name is McKenzie and we LOVE it!! Yes we call her mac n cheese 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! :)" Dec. 27, 2008:
"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." Dec. 11, 2008:
"I'm naming my daughter McKenzie (I don't want her to be called Mac or Mac and Cheese). That's why I am avoiding the spelling Mackenzie. We want to call her Kenzie or MK for short." Nov. 13, 2008:

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 immediatley sounds like a girls name! Well, i love it :) Hopefully my daughter will too!"

"my name is makensie.i love how my mom spelled it. is unique... kinda like me :]" Jul. 31, 2008:
"I am having a baby girl here soon and we plan on naming her McKenzie. Why do people make such a huge deal about it meaning "son of" and saying that it was originally a boys name? there are so many names out there now that are used for both male and female. and people that say the name is over used... well there are for sure a lot of names that have been over used before so why make such a big deal about it? its just a name that some people love and some people hate!" Jul. 28, 2008:
"We named our daughter MacKenzie! We call her Mac, MacKadoodle,MacAttack, Makenz. She loves her name!" Jul. 23, 2008:
"It's my name. I like it I suppose.:] My friends call me Mac and the kids I babysit call me Mac&Cheese. My grandma is from Ireland but that's not why I have this name. I don't like how popular it is though...I know 4 other Mackenzies. :[
I've heard Mackenzie means
-Son/Daughter of Kenneth
-Son/Daughter of a wise person
-Hansome, beautiful, or comely." Jul. 20, 2008:
"My daughter Mackenzie is now 9 weeks old I loved the name for years and never knew it was a "boys" name. I don't care, language and meanings have changed throughout the years and most society recognizes it as a girls name now =o)" Jul. 7, 2008:
"My name is MAckenzie Ferry. My mother named me that because my father's side of the family is Irish. It means born of a wise and handsome leader, which of course my father was consider handsome when he was young and is smart of math and science. At first, when I was young, I didn't like my name because it wasn't very popular nowadays. But as I got older I accepted it because people thought it was a beautiful and an unusual name. I'm thankful for my parents naming me something beautiful. I feel like a sacred beauty in folklore with that name." May. 3, 2008:
"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."
