I do that so frequently that (many years ago) I
created a function to facilitate the operation:

(defun dv-functionize-kbd-macro (sym) "Make 'function' of kbd macro."
  (interactive "SName for last kbd macro and the 'function': ")
  (name-last-kbd-macro sym)
  (insert ";;  \n;;  \n")
  (insert-kbd-macro sym)
  (insert "(global-set-key \[")
    (insert (concat "\] '" (symbol-name sym) ")\n\n"))
    (fill-region (re-search-backward "^(") (re-search-backward "^ "))))
(global-set-key [f12 ?m] 'dv-functionize-kbd-macro)

I usually do it in a file which is loaded as part of
my initialization, so the 'function' derived from the
macro is not just for the current session.
