    The name isn't for me but I prefer it with the Makenna spelling. Mc/Mac are too "son of" for a girl and phonetically, Makenna makes the most sense since I never actually hear "MC"kenna, only "muh"kenna.

    I honestly don't like that style of name at all. Any of the Mckenna, Makenzie, Mckinley, Mc...anything or Mak...anything.
    They're very trendy feeling and the multitude of spellings make them really tacky feeling to me--no true history or class.

    I know a little girl with the name, Makenna. I like this spelling even though McKenna is more popular.

    I think any name that starts with Mc anything is kind of chavvy. I think all the names you mention are very pretty, but I associate them with people who are simpler and less educated just because of knowing people with those names that are way less than ivy league educated. So am I, but do I want my name to indicate that?

    It's not always the case, but as a general rule. I can like the sound of a name all day but when it comes to naming somebody I don't want them being disadvantages by a negative association. Sadly, classism and racism are things my children will have to deal with since I haven't got millions and don't run a large business so they never have to go into the big bad world.

    My middle name is McKenzie (it's my grandma's maiden name) and I love it. My little sister's name is Makenna (we pronounce it 'muh-kenna') and that's my preferred spelling. I only ever call her Kenny, though. I can say first hand that Makenna is a great name for a little girl, with nicknames like Kenna, Kenny, Ken, and Kennalee.
