Our third son is called Mack. I see it as a very handsome and masculine name. It was perfect for our little boy, defiantly suits him and fits in well with our other two boys Troy and Ryan. I will often have to correct people though because they will think his name is Max. It is not very common in Australia to my knowledge.
