I was thinking about the name Mackenzie for a girl. My DH is Ken, so I thought how cute it might be to have a mackenzie. But I am not 100 percent sold on it. Part of me wonders if it would sound good as she ages and what career might she have that people might look at her funny. Then I remind myself there are tons of Mackenzie's out there!
We would name her Mackenzie Sue. Sue is my middle name and my mom's first name (Susan) so I was considering keeping a tradition going. Any opinions? Like or dislike? Etc...
I love Mckenzie (personally prefer this spelling). It's been on my list for years. I love the nn Kenzie too. I think it ages fine.. I'm not a fan of Sue, but I like the idea of honoring family in a name.

I don't care for it, as it means "son of Kenneth". Mc/Mac means "son of". In Gaelic, the female equivalent to "Mac" would be "Nic".
The most common class of Gaelic surnames are, of course, those beginning with mac (Gaelic for son), such as MacGillEathain (MacLean). The female form is nic (Gaelic for daughter), so Catherine MacPhee is properly called in Gaelic, Caitrìona Nic a' Phì. [Strictly, "nic" is a contraction of the Gaelic phrase "nighean mhic", meaning "daughter of the son", thus Nic Dhomhnuill, really means "daughter of MacDonald" rather than "daughter of Donald".] Although there is a common misconception that "mac" means "son of", the "of" part actually comes from the genitive form of the patronymic that follows the prefix "Mac", e.g., in the case of MacNéill, Néill (of Neil) is the genitive form of Niall (Neil).[/b]
Kenna is the feminine form of Kenneth, and in my humble opinion would be better than Mackenzie.
I LOVE Mackenzie. It is one of my Favorite names. I would go with it for sure. It's off our list now because i have 4 friends that named their daughter Mackenzie I even have one friend naming her daughter Kenzee.. Which i also adore.
We still have it on our list for Middle names. I agree though it doesn't age well but by the time she is older there will be alot of adult Mackenzie so she will be fine

I loved Mackenzie and was considering using it for Jordana's middle name but decided against it. Although it sounds more like a girl name to me, it's got Mac and Ken in it. It's cute though that she'd be named after your husband although finding out it means son of Ken puts me off a little. I think Kenzie or Kennedy would be cute! Kenna is a great suggestion too and you could even do Jackenzie if you want to keep with the Js like your other children Good luck!!
Thank you so much, Jessica "dettmer26", for the beautiful siggie!
