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

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
