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

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

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

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.”

This is pronounced MOR-ak, I believe.

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. :(

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.

This name sounds rather harsh to me.

Morag is the name of a loch monster in Loch Morar, Scotland.

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.

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.

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