fire-born; son of the wise ruler
Sometimes spelling is a major factor in choosing a baby’s name. You like a certain letter or don’t like it. You have an opinion on sticking a capital letter in the middle of a name. Mackenzie has been tinkered with over the years and yielded a couple of variations: Makenzie and McKenzie. No matter which you choose, all were derived from the Gaelic last name MacCoinnich (“son of Coinnich” or “son of the wise ruler”). Although Mackenzie has been a name used in Scotland for hundreds of years, Makenzie is an American creation.
