My name is Morag and I love my name. Your name is normally the first question you answer about yourself, when I have met new people and I say my name is Morag it often starts a conversation going e.g. "...an unusual name, where does it come from? What does it mean"? Etc, so my name has been a good friend to me, the older I get the more I love my name. I love Scotland so having a totally Scottish name is fine with me ☺.

People need to get over silly comments about whether Morag "sounds feminine" or not. Its history is feminine, and that should be good enough. After hundreds of years of use, what people think in the SE United States, where women are expected to wear hair bows, and where diminutives find their way onto birth certificates, is entirely irrelevant.

This is a name of great dignity and strength. Women should not only be named after flowers and other supposedly fragile objects. Too much has been achieved in history and too much reflection on gender has occurred, for such simple-minded comments.

Dónal Agus Mórag is a Northern Irish folk song, and that's what I always think of when I hear this name.

Never would have crossed my mind that this is a girl's name. In my opinion, Morag sounds VERY harsh and unflattering- especially on girls. Sounds more like a name for a medieval man or an non-human character or a non-human evil character. Just sounds more like a name that belongs in a story like Lord of the Rings and that type of stuff. A name that was last used like 8,000 years ago.

Pronounced the Scottish way, it's tolerable, but I live in America where this name would be butchered every day. I'd never use it on a child.

This name sounds rather harsh to me.

I like this name a lot. Unfortunately I live in the south-eastern US and it would be pronounced mo-RAG by most people, so it's not usable.

Morag is the spider queen in one of the Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborn. She isn't a very famous bearer (she's only in the one book, "Summer of the Sea Serpent") but that's the only time I was exposed to it. So unfortunately I always associate this with helpful giant spiders. :(

This is pronounced MOR-ak, I believe.

Morag MacDougal is indeed a minor Harry Potter character. She is in Harry's year at school, though she is a Ravenclaw pureblood. She was not a member of Dumbledore's Army, and J. K. Rowling changed her mind twice about her name.

The literal meaning of “Morag” is “the sun.”

If I recall correctly, Morag MacDougall is a minor character in Harry Potter.

This is my middle name, but I don't like it much. I'm always reminded of Morag the cow off Big Breakfast.

"Mòrag" could be used as a form of "Sallie" if "Mòr" is sometimes translated as "Sarah".
