McK--- for girls & --aiden for boys

Are the McK--- names for girls (McKenna, Mckayla, McKenzie etc) as bad as the -aiden names for boys (Aiden, Jayden, Caden) or are they not TOO overdone?

  • I don't think they are AS overdone as the aiden names, but they are NMS.

  • They're not as overdone, but equally annoying/bad.

  • I think they are overdone, but it's ok because they are nms anyway.

    I don't like Mc- names on girls for the same reason I hate -son names on girls.  The Mc- prefix means "son of," same as the -son suffix.  Naming a girl McKenna means you named her "son of Kenneth." 

    Preach it, sister! 

    I don't like McNames if they aren't family surnames, but I don't like any non-family surnames as FNs. We used my McName as DS2's middle name.

    I will always adore Aidan, but blame the rest of the -aedens for it's demise.

  • I think they're worse.  At least the Aidan trend makes sense to me-- Aidan is (in isolation) a nice enough name, and people like names that sound like other names they like. The McName trend completely baffles me. Why would you want your daughter to sound like a fast food order? 

  • I hate both trends...for real hate them.
