Meaning

Modern and with a good dose of fun, Mckenzie has strong roots in Scottish history. Hailing back to Celtic times, this is the Anglicized clan name for the MacCoinnich family. It means “son of Coinneach” or ‘bright one’, although some associate it with Coinneach, meaning “comely” or “good looking”. Certainly a bright and bubbly name, it can be shortened to Kenzie or Kenz.
