Comments and insights on the name Mckenzie: | Edit

My beautiful, creative, red-haired 18 year old daughter is named McKenzie. She loves her name and I'm glad we named her that. It seems to really fit her. It is the most popular of all our kids names. The only thing that almost kept me from using it is the popularity of the name. We call her Kenz and her boyfriend calls her Kenzie. She had to break daddy from calling her Little Mack, Baby Mack etc.
