Etymology & Historical Origin - Macie
Macie is a variant spelling of Macy. Macy (or Massey) is the transferred use of an English surname with Old French origins. The surname developed from either a location name (various villages located in Normandy) or from a Roman personal name Maccius (a Latin variant of Matthew which means ‘Gift of God’). It is also likely that Macy as a female given name developed simply as a modern coinage influenced by such names as Stacy, Tracy, and Lacy. Macie with an “-ie” suffix gives the name a cuter, more feminine quality.
Popularity of the Name Macie
The name Macie appeared on the American female naming charts starting as far back as 1882. Macie would maintain a position on the charts (albeit at low levels of popularity) all the way through the early 1930s. From that point on Macie went into hibernation for about 60 straight years, only to reappear in 1994. The 1990s is the decade when all the “Macys” became moderately popular, but collectively they are used quite a bit more than first meets the eye (since there are now four variations of this name: Macy, Maci, Macie and Macey). Macie follows a few modern-day American trends. For one, it’s the transferred use of a surname (which parents in the U.S. seem to love); secondly, it’s a cutesy “-ee” sounding suffix (like Gracie, Jaycee, Josie, Elsie, Kelsie, Haylee) which parents also find appealing for their little girls; and thirdly, Macie follows a couple of specific pop-culture trends igniting the name’s popularity (see Maci and Macy). It’s interesting that Macie and her sisters date back to the 19th century; it gives the name an added old-fashioned charm.
