McKenzie is another surname that has moved to the front of the line as a first name in the last three decades. It's a variation of MacKenzie, derived from the Gaelic last name MacCoinnich, meaning “son of Coinnich" or "fair" and handsome." A particular favorite in the South, McKenzie manages to be traditional with a modern fresh twist and suggests someone with a playful, youthful spirit. Once considered exclusively for girls, McKenzie has enjoyed gender-neutral popularity among baby girls and boys alike in recent years.
