I know a little girl named Keegan, I think this name fits boys and girls! It's cute!

I really like this name for a boy. It is a strong rugged name.

Like someone else already said, in some cases Keegan can be used for girls. Two years ago there was a girl named Keegan in my brother's class.

I prefer this name for a boy as well. Too masculine and rugged sounding for me. I really like this name.

Awesome name for a boy or girl. For a boy named Keegan, I would get a sense of masculinity and ruggedness for him. For a girl, I would get a sense of someone who loves the outdoors, isn't afraid to take physical risks, someone who likes to hang with the boys rather than go shopping or get a manicure. My name is Sarah, I absolutely hate it. I've decided to change my name to Keegan because it fits me perfectly. As for the people who don't think this name should be used for girls, you are very narrow-minded. Yes, everyone's entitled to their own opinions, but why should names be reserved for just one gender or the other? That's like saying "Sarah" is a Biblical name, so only Christian families should name their kids that.

Sorry if you don't like it but Keegan just sounds very boyish and masculine to me. I hear the name and I immediately think boy. And I am not narrow minded thank you very much.

Not everyone who disagrees with you is narrow-minded. *rolls eyes.*

Take me for example. I strongly dislike girls who have boys names - on most counts. For instance, I love the name "Shea" for a little girl. That is one of the only unisex names I like. I do, however, think that "Keegan" is a boy's name.

It's funny, my name is Keegan Laurel (as the favored name of one of the authors above) and the description of outdoorsy and lack of manicures to hang with the boys perfectly describes me, keegankira. As a female I do often encounter people expecting me to be a boy (understandably so) and growing up as a tomboy I had short hair so even my friends didn't know I was a girl for some time. But I do enjoy being feminine and am now happily married with a baby on the way (hence this name search). I have loved growing up with this name overall. It has made me stand out a bit in situations where I've needed to stand out (job interviews, etc) and I really feel it made me drama-free, down to earth, and easy going. I still have strong leadership qualities and tend to thrive in work environments (I am a chemist) but I also see great qualities in others and have no problem stepping out of the spotlight, too. I feel most of these qualities have come from my name. I did have a temper growing up (the fiery part of the name) but I have very much outgrown it. I can't say much for a boy named Keegan as I have never met one but I can't imagine they'd be anything less than awesome. :)

Such an awesome name, and I agree with the previous statement, it's good for both boys and girls.
-- rain-angel03  9/20/2006
I think this is a horrible name.
-- Anonymous User  12/11/2006
I like this name. I think it'd work for either a boy or a girl, but I'd say it's more fitting on guys. Maybe it would be better as a girl's middle name, rather than her first name. Think Elizabeth Keegan, or Hannah Keegan.

I love this name. I prefer it for a girl, in particular Keegan Laurel. This is one of my favorite names for a girl. I like that it is different and how it sounds.
-- princessveronica722  7/10/2007
The meaning here is said to be from a diminutive of Aodh (fire), but that doesn't explain how there's a G in this name, unless -gán is a duminutive suffix as well as -án and -ín. I had guessed the meaning was 'fire-born', with -gán meaning 'born' as in Comhghán. But if I archaify this to Maqas Aidugani (son of Fireborn), the G is medial to vowels, so I would expect the G to have been softened, as in Comhghán. On the other hand, lenition (such as G to Gh) doesn't always work how I expect it to, in my limited knowledge of it. Anyhow, 'son of Fireborn' sounds just as plausible as 'son of Fireling', ImHO.

Yuck. This name is mostly used by parents who are too proud of their "Irish" heritage. I hate the faux-Irish trend, and besides, most people in Ireland had names like Joseph, William, Catherine, and Sarah for centuries. They didn't use names like Keegan, Declan, Caoimhe, and Aidan, so get over it.
-- bananarama  8/29/2008
KEEGAN is a very MASCULINE name - strong and free-willed. I LOVE IT! And no, Keegan is NOT a girl's name even though you can use it as a girl's (It's like saying Ashley is a boy's name).
-- Anonymous User  10/8/2008
In my opinion, I think this name suits both boys and girls. Like someone said before, everyone's entitled to their own opinion, so could we PLEASE not argue about it? Thank you.
-- CanadianChibi  11/21/2008
I don't like the fact that it has the word geek in it backwards.
-- Hushpuppy  12/5/2008
I think the name Keegan is just weird. My friend likes the name and I don't understand why he does.
-- titans1011  6/4/2009
This name seems very popular in my blue collar, middle-class, New England, former mill town. I find it harsh sounding, faddish, and not at all cosmopolitan - sorry to come across as snobby, but I can't think of a better way to describe how this name makes me feel.
-- afmastro  8/18/2009
This is one of my favorite unisex names. I think it works well with both a boy and a girl. It's also adorable on a little kid without being too cutesy for an adult.
-- mrose19  6/7/2011
Seems much better suited for a boy than a girl.

Keegan Allen plays Toby Cavanaugh on the tv show Pretty Little Liars.
-- michelle.ramirez  4/25/2012
Well I think Keegan is for girls and boys. My name is Keegan and I'm a girl.
So I don't care what people think. At first I didn't like my name being Keegan but know I really like it. It's unique like me. :):):):):)

I'm a girl and my name is Keegan. I'm girly, I'm fun, I'm not a tomboy! I hang out with a whole bunch of girls, and some guys. The name Keegan for a girl does NOT MEAN THE GIRL IS A TOMBOY OR ONLY HANGS OUT WITH GUYS! Even my friends that are girls say they wish they had my name. No girl or boy at my school has my name, and I'm proud of it.

My name being Keegan, and my being a female, I see nothing wrong with the name for a girl. I'm 18 soon, and I've never been bullied for it. I was a bit of a lonely child when I was younger, but that was because I enjoyed reading, and everyone in my area was older than me. I now have the most amazing friends in the world. I still enjoy looking cute and I had ridiculously long hair, which is now very short and I LOVE it. I think it's quite rude to say that Keegan is a HORRIBLE name for a girl, because it's not, and that's just ridiculous. For reasons besides my name, I am trans*, but thanks to having this name I won't change it, and I'm actually one of two Keegan's in my WHOLE school district, the other being a little boy at an elementary, so I don't see a problem with it being over used any time soon. My Name is Keegan Marie K., and I adore the name Keegan. It's a bit of a family tradition, as my mother's name is Dennis and my older sister's name is Killian. We love our names and they have always been an easy conversational starter.

This name sounds very masculine. It would be like naming your daughter Paul.
-- AppleM32  1/13/2014
I'm not impressed by Keegan. I find that the mixture of sounds, "Kee-" and "-gan," do not compliment each other; they are rather unattractive together.
