  1. We liked that the name McKenna was unique and not a lot of people have it.

  2. We chose Mckenna (no uppercase K) as a compromise when hubby did not like Mackenzie after seeing it on a street sign of all things. We liked that it was less common and did not come with the possible nickname “Mack”. We hate how people always capitalize the K, because it is not a surname!
