@jesslyn: I disagree.
There is a right meaning. Mackenzie has been taken from Gaelic and means (and always has meant) 'son of Coinneach'. There is no different American meaning, like there is...
I feel for you, OP. People changing name meanings to suit themselves really irks me. It also annoys me when people change the spelling and pronunciation of a name to something completely...
It's my #1 name for a boy, so I love it ;) Totally classic and handsome, and I love William George as a combo! My other favourites for a boy are Thomas, Henry, Peter, Joseph, Arthur and Benjamin, if...

I think if you really love it, you should use it. I wouldn't be astounded to find a Catriona, Alasdair or Malcolm weren't Scottish; a Dominique, Vivienne or Margot weren't French; a Gideon, Jemima or...

I suppose it's on that list because of the strong association with Bruce Willis aka John McClane. He's not exactly Hitler, but still not someone most people want their kid named after.
Yep. Everyone I know down here pronounces it like 'know' :)
Thanks for recognising us as a nation ;)
I would steer away from Wessex seeing as Cornwall was never really part of it. It might have been, technically, at some point, but most consider them to be...

Shame, Maeve Isobel is really pretty! Do you or your DH not like any variations? Maeve Isabelle? Maeve Isabella?

Iris by a mile. Audrey seems very dull and dated to me. Not classic at all. Iris is a fresh vintage choice and I love it with Jack. Both are so bright and sprightly :)
Well, my first thought was cookie cutters, then my mind turned to self-harm. It's a no from me.

I've never heard of it. Perhaps it's because I've got nothing to do with that sect of society or perhaps because I'm English (thus maybe my opinion doesn't apply)...
It's a classic nickname with...
I think the farming association is fairly obvious, but not bad- Hayes and Hayden seem to get along fine. My main concern would be that it sounds like "hate them" in my accent.
I like Cian, Rory, Nora, Aoibhe and Maeve. I believe Èire is pronounced AIR-uh rather than AIR-ee, but I would suggest Erin instead. The rest are too surname-y/trendy/dated to me.
I also like...

Well, looking at the top 100 in England and Wales exactly 100 years ago...
Mary, Dorothy, Annie, Edith, Vera, Hilda, Ethel, Olive, Ellen, Mabel, Nancy, Iris, Betty and Enid all feel like they can...

@handsallover: I agree with you. I dislike the article but I don't think the stats are silly. They aren't saying that you're automatically clever/trashy if you had those names, just that some names...

It is interesting that they don't mind but then, as he says, it's probably the product of their open-minded area (and the fact they weren't teased.) It doesn't mean others won't find it ridiculous...

My thoughts are that people should stop giving this Conley guy air time. His arguments on baby naming are nonsensical at best.
I disagree with letting the kid choose their name. In later life...
It's money to me, not a name. I also think of the adjective, as in 'sterling work'. If it's a family surname I think it'd do better as a middle name.
I see several different styles here, with crossovers, but they mesh fairly well together (except Roderick, but that's probably just me):
Classic/Vintage: Catherine, Eve, Clara, Faye, Alexandra,...
I get that this is a dinosaur of a thread and that half the posters have long since disappeared, so mods can close this straight away if needs be. I just wanted to address some points for those that...

Is there a correct/more direct route to suggest missing names, Pam and Linda? I have a list of new names as long as my arm and a great many more which could do with editing, but posting them here...

I'd hazard a guess at LOO-koo, but I know it's at least partially wrong as I don't want to attempt and fail at the Welsh 'chkl' (that's what it sounds like to me :p) sound for Ll.
Don't like it much. I don't know about it being dated but it always reminds me of the IRA when I see it written down. Not so much when said aloud, but the visual IRA connection is off-putting enough...
It's an interesting custom but I wouldn't do it and I'd feel uncomfortable waiting for months. I'll try and condense my ideas into points, rather than an essay :p
- My new baby cousin was born...
Thanks guys. I do love Henry Richard, but my concern is that they have a similar ric root (home ruler/brave ruler)- a bit ruler heavy? I think I'm overthinking it :p
