Etymology & Historical Origin - Makenzie

Makenzie (like Mckenzie) is a variant form of the name Mackenzie, derived from a notable Scottish surname, which originated from the older Gaelic name "MacCoinnich" (or son of Coinneach, also son of the ‘bright one’). Coinneach was a personal name that came from the Gaelic word meaning "comely, good-looking.” Even though the Mackenzies have been a distinguished Scottish clan for over 700 years, the usage of Makenzie as a forename is unique to North America (and the United States in particular). The given name Mackenzie has become popular only within the past 30 years in the United States and Canada, originally among people of Scottish origin. As the name grew in popularity, other spelling formations began to crop up. Makenzie and Mckenzie are examples of this.

Popularity of the Name Makenzie

The name Makenzie is the least popular of the three “Mackenzie” names, although it does not lag too far behind Mckenzie. It obviously just comes down to a spelling preference. The original form of the name (i.e., Mackenzie) was the first to the charts in 1978 and McKenzie followed in 1984. Makenzie first appears on the U.S. popularity charts in 1991, and like her sisters, has experienced trendy growth in the past 15-20 years. The spelling of Makenzie is most popular in the state of Mississippi where it ranks in the Top 50.

    Makenzie and the Monsters @ Bay 151 (C A Hoffman) - A young girl (Makenzie) is jaded by her common, mundane life. So drained of excitement was her summer life in Troy, Ohio that when one day chance presented her with an exciting opportunity, she was not about to refuse. Entering her father’s lab she fiddles with one of his science experiments. Immediately and to her immense regret the experiment began to manifest itself and Makenzie was sucked through a swirling vortex of energy. In a distant world and, perhaps even a distant time, Makenzie lands upon the hard rock floor of a cave. What our young friend would soon realize is that the experiment changed her as the harshness of the metals and chemicals she used were fused to her spinal cord and brain. With mere thoughts, Makenzie could now transform herself into a very large panther with glowing silvery orbs for eyes and purple and black fur. With her new found treant friend (Urek) and her new found ability she must battle her way off the spaceship in which she finds herself now trapped upon. She must make new friends during her journey if she is ever to defeat the evil race of Molkin (mole creatures) and she must use every ounce of her incredible intellect if she is to thwart the evil plan of the Molkin Leader, Solor. She must do these things if she is ever to return home to the existence that she now misses and cherishes. Recommended for ages 9-12.
