MacKenzie

Wanna make Dad feel good? Name your son Mackenzie. Meaning “son of the wise ruler”, Mackenzie kind of fell off the charts as a boys name in the 2000s, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a strong choice. After all, Mackenzie is the name of both a former Prime Minister of Canada and a World Golf Hall of Famer. How’s that for illustrious?
