Im so glad that Mackenzie, however you choose to spell it, has become so popular! I'm 26 and the only other Mackenzie's that people talked about when I was growing up were MacKenzie Phillips and spuds mackenzie (the dog)!!!
Our Son Mackenzie
written by Linda and Chris Johnson, February 10, 2008
Well my son is called Mackenzie we sometimes shorten it to Kenzie-boy. He is now three and since having him I know of may more Mackenzie boys. We thought we were being unique but its amazing how many people decide to copy. Love the name but only know of Mackenzie boys!!!!

My son name is Mackenzie, Mack for short. When I named him I knew it was a boys name...If you have problem with it... don't call him...hahaha. I have a daughter named Ryan, Raigan...I love the names...

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.
I''m girl with a boys name
written by McKenzies before, February 21, 2008
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!
Because my mom fell in a snowbank
written by Makenzie, February 26, 2008
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 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..
brilliant name
written by Mother of Mickenzie, March 21, 2008
My son, now 3 is call Mickenzie, spelt this way as i didn't want it shortened to mack, also spelling it this way it dosen't look like a surname. He was born the day before JK Rowling daughter-called Mackenzie. i was so glad he came the day before as people would of said i was coping the writter. I think it is a fantastic name and in the town i live in only one other person, a boy, born last year is called mckenzie, so still spelt diffrently.

hay.. = )

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.
Another meaning...
written by MakMama, July 03, 2008
We named our 3 year old daughter Makenzie, and had heard the meaning "child of wise leader", but recently I found another meaning which is quite appropriate for her... the name also has an Irish and Gaelic origin, and its meaning is "fire-born; child of the wise ruler". The name's development was also influenced by Cainnech, meaning "good-looking". Now the part that really struck me is the "fire-born" meaning, as she is absolutely a WILD girl- ALWAYS FULL OF ENERGY! Her father and I both have many Native American ancestors, and he began calling her "Running Wild Fire" from a young age. In addition, she is an Aries, which is a fire sign. I also think it is neat that this meaning is Irish in origin because I have Irish ancestors as well. Pretty amazing I think!
boys and girls
written by Nik, October 18, 2008
I love the name Mackenzie for both boys and girls. We decided our second child would be called Mackenzie regardless of their sex. We ended up having a little boy. Most people, when we tell them our child's name say something to the effect of "What a lovely name for a girl." We are constantly correcting people on it. I hope its not something that annoys him when he is older.

I'm considering Mackenzie spelled Mackynzie for my little girl who is due October 1st! This is such a pretty name.

name change
written by brandi, May 07, 2010
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
great strong boys name with history and meaning
written by Marisa, June 11, 2010
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.
MaKenzie Brynn
written by Isabel Clare, August 16, 2010
My friend is called MacKenzie but she spells it MaKenzie. I think this is a unique way to spell it and it fits her just perfectly. Also, if anyone is looking for a middle name for this, Brynn would be a very good choice.
