My son is named MacKenzie, he goes by Mac. We named him this because it is an old family name going back several generations. It started when a distant grandparent named their son MacKenzie giving him their surname. It aggrevates me to no end when people say that MacKenzie is a girls name. I respect parents decision to name their daughter "son of". Do not insult my son for having a name that came with our family from Ireland as a boys name! When I pick him up at school the ignorant receptionist repeatedly asked me if I was picking up my daughter. I finally took the family crest and name meaning to her and said look at what it means. She said her granddaughter was named MackKenzie and she didn't know it meant son of. It is a beautiful name but the people saying that it is a girls name and shouldn't be used for a boy really make me mad. At least show a little common sense and tolerance for others that you demand for yourself.

My name is MacKenzie and I am a guy. I've never meet another, let alone a girl, with the name MacKenzie, but it would make a fine girl's name. I don't care much for the meaning. I mean, sure, it's great to know the meaning of your name, but it's like your Zodiac: it's just some ancient definition that has very little to do with who you are and how you live. Okay, so it's a guys name and it's a last name... I wonder how many guys have girl's names and how many people have last names as first names. My brother, for example. His first name is his father's last name. He doesn't care. I don't care. No one cares! It's just a name. It is a way of identifying. Nothing more. You shouldn't try to read so far into it that that's all you see and there's no room for compromise.
MacKenzie is a strong name. I think anyone who has it should be proud. And as 'trendy' as people say it is, you'll probably meet more 'David's' and 'Matthew's' in your life than you will 'MacKenzie's' (believe me. I know like 6 David's and 4 Matthew's).
My eleven year old son is called Mckenzie. There are more boys than girls with this name in the UK. I like it due to the meaning of the name 'son of' and because of where we come from. And my Macca loves it.. definitely a boy's name..
