Description:Mack, when "formalized" with the final k, makes an engagingly amiable choice, a far more uncommon alternative to the ubiquitous Max and Jack, with a nice, every-guy feel.

Description:Not often heard on girls, although Hillary Scott used it as the middle name for her daughter Betsy in 2018.
