Comments for MEAGHAN:

According to my opinion this is very nice name - sweet to pronounce and has got good meaning and after all powerful name considering the numerology.

This name sucks. Whoever started it was obviously trying to spice up the boring name "Megan" but all they did was make it an eyesore.

I had a friend with this name, and every time her mother would call her inside, she'd pronounce it "MAY-ghan." Eugh! The spelling of Meaghan is alright, but I absolutely hate the pronunciation; it sends shivers down my spine.

This spelling of Megan (as well as other variants) annoys me. It's an attempt to make the Welsh name Megan seem more Irish/Scottish because that's what's hot. Very annoying and it looks funny. Just my personal opinion.

I like my friend's name. I think it's original.

People are continually spelling my name like this, and I'm sick of it! It's just nice, ordinary Megan. Is there a problem with nice, ordinary names and spellings?

This is actually my name. Spelt this way. It is 100% Irish. Yes this is actually the correct Irish way to spell Meaghan. Also, the name doesn't have to be spelt MAY-ghin. I hate it when people do that to me. I pronounce it MEH-ghin. I actually don't think it's that terrible of a name because it's unique and at the same time not a totally out there name.

This name is just ugly. Just spell it Megan or Meghan.

Okay, any form of the name, whether it be Megan, Meghan, or Meaghan, is NOT Irish. This is NOT an Irish name, at all. So don't try and convince yourself that it is. Because there is absolutely no Gaelic connection with this name. It's Welsh. Get over it.

You're wrong tooo. The origin is not Irish or Welsh, even though they may use it (making it theirs). The actual origin is GREEK.

You guys are so annoying. Stop saying Meghan and Meaghan and Meagan are just trendy spellings of Megan because they are not. You know how Jakob and Jacob are the same, just from different countries? Well it's the same with Megan, Meghan, Meaghan and Meagan. Everyone knows that each spelling of Meghan (Yes I always spell it Meghan Because that's how is spelled) is derived from a different country. Megan-Greek, Meghan-Welsh, Meaghan-Irish, Meaghanne-My friends neighbor :)

I can't say I would ever use Megan/Meghan, since I'm not a fan of the sound of "meg," but honestly I think Meagan & Meaghan are way too loaded spellings--and an attempt to make something "Irish" when it just isn't. If I were ever to use this name, I would probably spell it Megan, the original way, even though I have a cousin who spells it Meghan and it looks nice that way. But no to Meagan/Meaghan, way too many letters--way too many *vowels*. I still prefer Megan and its variants to Margaret, though.

I live in Ireland and nothing about any form of Megan is Irish. It was originally a pet form of Margaret in Welsh. If you want to have some form of Irish name related to Megan, then you use Mairéad, the Irish form of Margaret. Americans especially are so adamant that the name Meaghan/Maeghan/anything with a GH in it is Irish when it's just not.

Agh! Horrendous spelling! Let me educate, I'm Welsh, I can speak Welsh and I've lived in Wales my entire life and I can tell you that Megan is the only version we always use and the CORRECT Welsh way of spelling it (and it's a lovely name!). There are NO unnecessary extra letters as Welsh is a completely phonetic language (providing you know the phonics).
I advise Americans to properly research Celtic names and pronunciation before ignorantly insisting/assuming they are Irish/Scottish/Welsh purely based on how it looks (as MeganBridget pointed out).

Whenever I see "Meaghan" and people insist it's Irish, I pronounce it "Mayan". Then they object. You just can't win.

I find it funny that while my parents thought this name was incredibly unique, it had a massive spike in usage in the 80s. I went to school with about 10 other Meaghan/Megan/Meagans.
-- MeaghanVR  7/24/2014
smiilebiiggerx3 and megi99 both said that the name Megan (the original spelling from which this variant derives) is Greek. This is blatantly false. Margaret, the name Megan is derived from, is a Greek name, but the Greek form of Margaret is Μαργαριτα. Μεγαν makes zero sense in Greek as a girl's name.
