Comments for KENZIE:

I named my daughter Kenzie and she's definitely a one of a kind, like her name. The only downfall is that everyone thinks it's a nickname for McKenzie.

A cute nickname for Mackenzie/Makenzie, but it doesn't sound whole by itself as a first name.

Kenzie isn't a bad name at all, kind of cute. I also like the name Kinsey.

I like this name - while it sounds trendy, it's not (in my opinion). I know a guy in his twenties named Kenzie, and it fits him perfectly. But if you want to go for a more grown-up feel, name the kid MacKenzie and use Kenzie as a nickname.

So much better than Mackenzie! None of this surname "son of" stuff.

This name truly does sound more like a shortened version of an actual name rather than the official name of a person. I don't think it's cute on a little girl at all. On girls, it sounds tacky and ugly, but it sounds okay on little boys, however, not on grown men. It's positively ridiculous on women.

I know a girl named Kenzie! I think Kenzie is a great name, and I like the fact that it comes from Mackenzie.

Feminine diminutive of the name Mackenzie. (Also a shorter version of it.)

Kenzie is also a semi-common surname.

I think Kenzie is way better for girls than McKenzie.

I think this name can stand alone just as "Kenzie" (without the MAC) and still be a nice solid first name. I think of it particularly as a feminine name (the MAC on Mackenzie, to me, makes it sound more masculine.)

It's weird that people act like this could never be a stand-alone name. I know a 15 year old girl named Kenzie, and it's maturing on her very well. Yeah, Mackenzie is interesting, but it's overrated, and it's annoying (to me anyway) that the whole MAC part makes it more masculine. In fact, it goes better with guys with having that in there. For girls, Kenzie is much better.

I know a little girl with the spelling 'Kensi' (pronounced just like Kenzie). 'Kensi' is short for Kensington.

Oh wow... People use 'Kenzie' as a full name?! This is even worse than Mackenzie (and that's really saying something) what happened to the good old days when Mackenzie was only used as a surname? I feel horrible for the poor girls who are forced to bear this tacky, trendy, juvenile name. Imagine a 40 year old woman named Kenzie. I really wish people would think about their childrens' futures before using names like these. This screams "teen mom!" And is just plain horrible as a nickname for the awful, trendy Mackenzie, but even worse as an actual legal name.

Not exactly a "meaningful" name...

And by the way, if you look up the meaning of MacKenzie, you'll find that it means "son of Coinneach". You might be thinking, "well, if you take out the "Mac" part, it no longer means "son of" and thus becomes feminine"... that is so wrong. The name Coinneach is a MASCULINE Scottish name meaning "handsome".

There is nothing feminine about Kenzie other than the common misconception that names ending in the "ee" sound are girly.
