Comments and insights on the name Mckenna: | Edit

I named my daughter McKenna after I had a little girl in a children's camp in our scrapbook store with the same name. I loved it and thought it was so unique. I also love the movie "Somewhere in Time" and had remembered the main character Elise McKenna. Loved it then and love it now. I do see a LOT of little girls with the same name now. It's gaining in popularity. I also have Scottish in my ancestry, so the "Mc" part of the name also has significance because my maiden name is McClaren. The only problem we have is that in daycare she is learning to write her name and they are using a lowercase "k" instead of the uppercase that it should be, and we also had some daycare teachers that were shortening it to Kenna. Minor things, but still annoying after you take great care to pick a name out by sound, spelling, and meaning!

Personal experiences with the name Mckenna: | Edit

I named my daughter McKenna after the 1979 movie "Somewhere in Time." I had had that name ever since I saw the movie, and years later I did name her that. I later found out that it was a Scottish name, and I can find, at Celtic stores, some things with her spelling on items. Very few, however. I truly love this name and am finding more McKennas than ever now! In 1995, there just weren't that many. But, I have had the name since 1979! :o)
