Mackenzie is a sweet Scottish surname with Gaelic roots. And it comes outfitted with the adorably stylish nickname Mac or Mack to boot. It’s still considered a boys' name in Scotland, but it has been a girls' name in the US since 1976. Even though Mackenzie hit the height of its popularity from 1999 to 2002, it’s still a top baby name choice, with variations McKenzie and Makenzie. Need more proof of its success? Harry Potter author JK Rowling named her second daughter Mackenzie Jean.
