Can also be spelt "Mac" and can be a short form of "Mackenzie".

A generic name. I think of "Hey, Mack," something you might say to someone whose name you don't know. I also think of Mack trucks.

To me Mack is a short but sturdy sounding name. I like the sound of it.

My friend and I both like the name Mack. It is handsome and rugged sounding.

Short form of Mackinnon, Mackenzie, or Mankinley.

"Mack" is obviously spelled "Mac" in Gaelic. And just think of the MacKintosh "Mac" computers; people would be so surprised to find that they had sons and never knew it!

I wouldn't name my child this, but I still think that it is a good, sturdy name for a male pet.

Sounds more like a name for a dog to me. A child would get teased far too much for the name Mack, it rhymes with so many things (Smack, Sack, Whack, etc). Also, it sounds like Big Mac and Macintosh. It's a strong, handsome name but just too easily teased.

Not a bad nickname, but an asinine official name. As an actual name, it sounds far too boyish, and will not give an impression of high intelligence.

I like it better spelled Mac, so it doesn't look like "smack". But hey, I'm probably just paranoid. Otherwise, I think it's a nice name.

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack, all dressed in black, black, black! Are you serious? A boy named Mack will get that all the time!

I think this is a good name. The fact that it rhymes with slack etc hasn't stopped thousands from calling their sons Jack. I think Mack is a useful alternative to Jack which is lovely but now far too common.

Mack means "gas station" in Swedish. It was originally an acronym made up of the initial letters in the surnames of four men who manufactured pumps for gas stations: Mathiasson, Andersson, Collin and Key.

I think it makes a nice nickname a for a boy named Mackenzie or McKinley, both of which are MALE names.

The variant "Mac" can be a nickname to many names beginning with Mac-, including MacAlister, MacArthur, and MacKenzie.

My name is MacKenna, and I get called Mack as a nickname. Before you go all crazy, I know it's a traditionally male's name. But so what? Names don't have genders unless we assign one to them. I personally don't identify as fully male or female, so I like exploring unisex names. Mack (or Max, as I prefer) both seem to fit me well.
