I really love the name Mackenzie Nicole for our little girl that is due May 2nd but my husband is kind of not wanting to do so. Here is why...
His ex wife had a daughter (after they split up and he is not the father) and she named her Mackenzie. She now lives in Colorado. He had 2 kids with her of whom we see. We never see Mackenzie and I believe neither do his other 2 children with his ex wife. He just don't want Conner and Gracie to be confused and he also thinks it is wrong to name our daughter Mackenzie after his ex wife did the same. I don't know what to do. This is my last baby (I'm getting my tubes tied) and I really love the name Mackenzie and can not find another that will grab my heart like this one did.
I would like your opinion on the matter. Am I wrong for wanting to name our daughter Mackenzie Nicole? Or should I not do so for the fact that my step kids have a half sister already named Mackenzie?
Honestly, I think it'd be weird. I understand why your husband doesn't want to name her that. Also, it really probably would be confusing for the kids to have 2 sisters with the same name. I would try to find another name you love.
I totally understand where your husband is coming from. There were a lot of names that I liked but reminded my DH of someone he knew and didnt like etc and I respected him. We eventually found one we both loved!
I'm with your husband on this. That would just be too weird. His kids would have two sisters named mackenzie. And how do they not see her ever if they have the same mother?? I doubt they have zero contact with her. I just would not do it. Find another name you like.
And besides, Mackenzie is actually a masculine name I'm pretty sure.
