The name Mackenzie for a girl seemingly appeared out of nowhere in the mid-70s. Most contribute its popularity to the actress Mackenzie Phillips who starred in the popular TV show One Day at a Time. Nowadays, it’s thought of as a sassy and cute name for a girl, which comes with the equally adorable nickname, Mac. And while modestly popular, it’s certainly no Sophia, so rest assured that your daughter may be the only Mackenzie in class.
