I would suggest, because I'm not from any of the countries in Africa, to find the meaning of each English name, and then try to match it to the meaning of an African name.
--> Therefore, choose an African name that means "clan" or "pretty/handsome."
"Makeda (Ma-kee-da) [means] The beautiful (Ethiopia) "
Therefore, for Mackenzie, I would choose Makeda.Source(s): Google searches: name meaning http://www.google.com/search?q=name+meaning&ie=utf... use http://www.behindthename.com/ [it loads faster], or the link above. AND "African names" http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-...
