The former Seventh Heaven actress Beverley Mitchell and husband Michael Cameron have a new bundle of joy—a brand new daughter. The name they gave her? Kenzie Lynne.
Kenzie began as a boy’s name, and it means light-skinned. But these days, it’s more commonly used as a girls’ name, where it’s currently on its way into the top 300 baby names on a huge upswing. (Consider it an alternative to the top 75 baby name Mackenzie.)
Lynne, of course, has been a middle-name staple for decades. Lynne means “lake,” and it’s currently fallen out of favor as a first name (it hasn’t been in the top 1000 baby names for more than 30 years). More people seem to go for the literal “Lake” as a middle name now than the Lynn/Lynne option.
The name is cute, and flows nicely (I like the zingy “z” in the middle of Kenzie).
What do you think of Kenzie Lynne? Are these names that you’d consider for your daughter? Don’t forget to like In Name Only on Facebook to keep up with the latest in baby names.
