Mackenzie for a boy? vs. yes vs. no

As a disclaimer, my maiden name is Mackenzie. I am expecting my first child in a few weeks, a little boy, and am pretty set on using Mackenzie. However, at a family function with my in-laws they highly criticized our choice calling it a girls name. He would go by ’Mack’. Is it too feminine even with the nickname ’Mack’? The only reason we like Mackenzie is because of the meaning to me.

Genie's Mailbag

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
