Mackenzie Scarlett - what do you all think of it? With a 2 syllable surname...

Scarlett is lovely, but Mackenzie is only good as a surname IMO.

I think Mackenzie clashes with all your other beautiful, classic names. Scarlett goes well though.

I love it.... but i'm a Mackenzie fan, i know many dont like it.

Love Mackenzie as a girls name!  wub.gif We have one who is 10 months old! She gets Kenzie as her nickname, when she was born her then 2.5 yo sister called her that as she couldnt say her full name! It has stuck!

No but I hate surnames as first names and Mac names in particular.

#7 LadyMorgana

I like the name, but not sure if it suits the rest of your names?

No.

Scarlett is lovely but if I had siblings with beautiful names like hers do I would feel very short changed being lumbered with Mackenzie.

I think Scarlett is beautiful and goes perfectly as a first name with your other children's names (which are gorgeous!).

So my vote would be leave Mackenzie and use Scarlett as her first name.

Dislike Mackenzie, dislike Scarlett, and as such really dislike the combination sorry.

As others have said, I think something more classically beautiful, rather than trendy and likely to date, would better match your sibset.

Sorry OP.

I agree with countrymel.

Mackenzie makes me think of a boss yelling out to an employee "MACKENZIE!! you have really stuffed it up this time! rant.gif "

weird. but true.

Mackenzie is bogan!!!

Scarlet is nice but Mackenzie is a boys name. My son's middle name is McKenzie and he is from a long line of male Scottish McKenzies. It is one of those names that I will always find ridiculous on a girl, a bit like calling a little boy Samantha.

Scarlett fits in beautifully with your other 3 kids' names. Sorry but I don't like Mackenzie at all, it sounds too harsh to be a girls name.

I don't like it and if I was lumped with that name while my sisters got lovely names like Annabella and Charlotte I would feel ripped off.

#18 la di dah

Posted 29 March 2012 - 01:48 PM

I don't like either name very much but they do kind of go together. The flow isn't too bad.

I like Scarlett a little bit more, but wouldn't do the recommended Scarlett as a first name, not with sister Charlotte!

I agree.

I do like the name Mackenzie, Mac for short. But it is rather popular these days. Scarlett is fine, not my kind of name, but I don't think it's terrible.

Agree with pps that Mackenzie doesn't match the class and beauty of your other girl's names. Like LDD said, I wouldn't do Scarlett as a first name it's too much like Charlotte. Sorry I haven't been very helpful with alternatives.

#22 Cat People

I prefer Scarlett Mackenzie but it would be a bit funny with Charlotte.

#23 TotesFeral

Posted 29 March 2012 - 03:27 PM

I don't mind Mackenzie but I don't think it would look a bit funny.
Agree Scarlett is too close to Charlotte.

#24 Guest_Starletta_*

Posted 29 March 2012 - 03:33 PM

I think Eleanor Scarlett would go well with your other names.

Another who isn't a fan of Mackenzie.

My daughters name is Mckenzie , we love it and it suits her. I think the PP needs to get off the bogan bandwagon though.  Just because a name isn't to your taste it doesnt make it bogan.

I also like  Mackenzie scarlett so I say if you like it use it. I dont understand needing sibset names to be matchy.
