How is it meant to be spelt?

It looks like a surname to me.

ShatnersBassoon Tue 06-Aug-13 23:48:42

It is unusual. Is it a boy or girl?

ravenAK Tue 06-Aug-13 23:48:47

Is she any good with apostrophes, though?

SupermansBigRedPants Tue 06-Aug-13 23:49:18

Oh my god - is it after mckinley high in glee??

KateBeckett Tue 06-Aug-13 23:49:28

As is the school from Glee??

As in ' McKinley High' from Glee I should expect - it's a school not a child's name.

Oh dear.

Branleuse Tue 06-Aug-13 23:51:59

you do realise if she searches for the name, this thread will come up straight away?

HopLittleFroggyHopHopHop Tue 06-Aug-13 23:52:22

unusual, but saying that I have a cousin called McKenna, and she loves her name so I guess it's not too different.(Her sisters have completely normal names!)

CoolStoryBro Tue 06-Aug-13 23:53:03

Err, what does it matter what we all think of your cousin's baby's name? Presumably they're happy with it? I hate all this judgey bollocks on here about names. Each to their own.

Just dreadful.

Onyabike Tue 06-Aug-13 23:56:22

How many babies does she have? Hope she doesn't use Mumsnet!

McKinley High is named after US president William McKinley who was shot dead at the 1901 Pan American Exposition in Buffalo. Wonder if your cousin knows that.

Isn't there a Mount McKinley? Either way, i don't like it!

It's yoo-neek innit?

<and absolutely awful>

It sounds like an American detective programme. grin

Probably best you ask HQ to remove this thread. It's very identifying.

JumpingJackSprat Wed 07-Aug-13 07:53:33

Whats it got to do with you op?

Onyabike Wed 07-Aug-13 07:57:57

I agree with poster above - your poor cousin. I really hope she doesn't see this thread. Get it deleted ASAP.
