Maci is a mystery. It most likely comes from the Old French surname Macy, which means “weapon.” Or is its origin tied to the names of French villages? Maybe it came from the Roman name Maccius. Or is it simply an extension of the Staci-Traci trend? One thing is for sure: The name made it on the naming charts in the 1990s but didn’t go too far until 2010, when a young girl named Maci was one of the stars of the reality show “Teen Mom.”
