Comments for MORGAN (1):

This name is truly facsinating, every aspect of this name from the culture which is Welsh to the uni-sex factor. This name is well-suited for a young lady because it is beautiful, or for a young man because it is strong. Morgan Freeman is a famous bearer and another princess is Morgan le Fay.

It think MORGAN is a wonderful name. My little girl's name is MORGAN and she is a little princess. She is as pretty as her name.

Morgan is also a breed of horse.
-- ringer007  7/9/2005
Morgan is a breed of horse that originated from Justin Morgan, a single stallion named after his owner (a school teacher). The little horse was brave, fast, and strong, not to mention versatile. I think Morgan is a great name for a child, someone who will really leave a mark on the world, just like Justin Morgan!

Morgan happens to be my family's last name. I have always believed that Morgan was a Irish last name.

My son is named Morgan, also his grandmother's maiden name. I chose it for that, because of its relationship to the sea, and because it was Welsh (my paternal grandfather was Welsh). After Morgan arrived, my mother-in-law discovered that her late husband had had an uncle named Morgan. I think it is a strong name, unusual enough but not strange.

I really like the name Morgan but prefer it for a boy. It was originally a boy's name after all.

I love this name! Although it was originally for a boy, I prefer it for a girl and think it would be funny to call her Morgan Fay! (Especially if you have a relative with the name Fay) Because then you would have the "Morgan the Fairy" story behind it.

I have a friend named Morgan, and she's really smart and nice and quiet, but I don't think I could ever name a child this; it always makes me think of Morgan Le Fay.
-- Arowen Half-Elven  1/12/2006
The origin of the name Morgan is disputed, however speaking the ancient language of Welsh myself which dates to pre-roman times of approx 1000 BC it is said to come from Mor(sea) and Can (Welsh for song) derived of (Latin/Roman influence) cantor sing or possibly 'Gan' born. Therefore sea-song or sea-born hence the later English translation of the name. Lovely innit!

Personally,I don't think it's a pretty name. It reminds me of a guy of rugged features, nothing like a beautiful girl.

Though it isn't related to it, Morgan is pronounced the same way as the German word for morning as in "Guten Morgen" (good morning).

I would use Morgan for either a boy or girl. My husband and I found out that back in his family tree there had been an adoption and if it weren't for that, his last name would have been Morgan. We are done having kids but would have considered this for one of our kids. It would have been used for a boy then since all 5 of our kids are boys. Probably a middle name we would have used it for.

The name Morgan sounds to me like a surname! I don't think it has any flair, and is better suited to a boy than a girl.

I really do love this name, not the least because lots of people hate it because of its connection with Morgan le Fay. It seems unfair to dislike a name because of someone who bears it. To me, Morgan calls up images of a strong, unique woman or girl. I do know a boy named Morgan, but I prefer the feminine use of this name.

I am torn with this name. Something draws me to it, but the only Morgan I've known wasn't very pleasant. She was very much like the Morgan Le Fay of legend. She was very much connected to our family, as well. I don't know if I, or my family, could get over that association.
-- KrisMichelle  1/14/2007
The fact that it's currently used as a girl's name is absolutely disgusting. Morgan is a totally masculine name. I am so sick of the unisex trend because people use it as a cover-up to use guys' names on girls, but never girls' names on boys because it makes guys with girls' names "gay."

Yes, if I have a son, I'll definitely name him Morgan. Just because one girl is named Morgan, it doesn't automatically mean Morgan is a girl's name.

I've never met a boy named Morgan, I have met several girls named this. Despite that it makes me think of a ruggedly handsome man. I would definitely consider this for a son of mine.

I love this name, though I wish it weren't so popular. And while I'm usually adverse to using boys' names for girls, Morgan le Fay is certainly feminine, so it's been one for more than half a millenium.

I like this name okay. I can't imagine it on a boy. I've only known two Morgans and both were girls, so that has a hand in it.
-- spaz123  5/13/2007
I've only met one girl and no boys with this name. Morgan sounds masculine to me though. I would never use any unisex name for my future children. Can you imagine your child having to say, "I'm Miss or Mr. Morgan?" Names should signify the gender, not leave people guessing.

This is my name and I love it! My middle name is Elaine and I think it is very pretty together: Morgan Elaine. I have so many friends named Morgan, though.

I have the name Morgan, and when I was younger thought it sounded too rough, and masculine for a girl. My friends all had names like 'Ally' or 'Anna' which I found very feminine. Now, I'm proud of my name. I'm the only Morgan in my school, so it's great that it's not over-used. Sometimes people will mention Morgan Le Fay or ask if my full name is Morganna. When I talk to people from different countries, who aren't familiar with the name, the first thing they mention is that it's a 'strong' name. Unisex? Too much 'org'? I don't think so. My name is strong. Of course, gym teachers will always call me by my last name. I'll just consider that endearment. And to think all those years I hated being the girl with the masculine name in class, I also hated being the tallest girl in class. Now I'm the perfect height for a runway model. And so what if some handsome guys are named Morgan? There's nothing wrong with being a handsome girl. By the way, everyone I know who reads 'Morgan' assume it's referring to a female. The origins of this name captivate me, so old and mysterious. If the name associated with the seaside, water nymphs and sorcery isn't strangely elegant, I don't know what is.

Well, that's all I'll say. Keep commenting!

The name "Morgan" may also be related to the Welsh and Breton water-spirits, alternatively spelled Murgen or Mari-Morgan. There may also be a connection to the goddess Murigen, who is believed to be a specific personification of said spirit. Morgans held many similarities with other legendary water spirits, such as Greek nymphs, German Ondine, and some legends of the Celtic Kelpie.

Though I am not called by it, Morgan is my middle name, and also my older sister's. She prefers it to her first name, though I think she spells it "Morgin" for phoenetic purposes.

At first, I thought I had been given a girl's name and never told people what my middle name was, but it has hence grown on me quite a bit. I cannot use it, though, as my sister already does.

I prefer Morgana should one wish to use this as a feminine name.

Morgan is the daughter of Robert, Patrick Dempsey's character, in the Disney film "Enchanted". She also becomes the stepdaughter of Giselle, Amy Adams's character, the heroine of the film.

Morgan is the main character in the series Sweep by Cate Tiernan. She is Wiccan, and not only that, she is a blood witch, meaning she is descended from one of the seven great Wiccan clans, who have a slightly different genetic makeup than humans. She is also incredibly powerful, even for a blood witch. Morgan is the heroine of Sweep, and an awesome one she is!

I think of this as more of a feminine name, and it sounds quite dated as a boys' name at this stage. I don't get the popularity of this name. It's not the worst name out there, but it isn't very pretty.

My sister's name is Morgan. Personally, she loves it, though I find it bulky and disgusting. 'Org' just seems a little heavy, if you know what I mean. If I ever change my mind about having children, I'll use this as a middle name, but never as a first.
-- IronTears  6/9/2008
It seems like Morgan is the quintessential unisex name, commonly used on both genders. The first Morgan I knew was a girl in elementary school, who was endlessly teased with the "Morgan Organ" nickname. She was also called "Morg" by her parents, and I cringed every time, thinking only of a morgue. I've since only met older teenage boys with the name Morgan. Personally, I prefer Morgan to be given to males, although I would never use the name on a child of my own. The child would be subjected to merciless teasing, from "Morgan Organ" to jokes about morgues to being called a boy if they were a girl or vice versa. It's a wonderful name, without all the connotations.
-- GuessWho  6/15/2008
I really like this name for a girl, it seems so sunny and bright, stately and graceful. I know Morgan means morning in German too so that's what I think when I hear it, which probably isn't where the name comes from, but I like associating it with morning and sunshine.

I am sick and tired of people thinking that Morgan is a feminine name. My younger brother is called Morgan and he is constantly asked why he has a girl's name. It's originally a masculine name!
When my brother was born, Morgan was hardly used as a first name here in Britain. Now there are so many girls called Morgan it makes me sad. Fortunately my brother he thinks it's a spiffing name no matter what people say to him. I agree.

For starters my name's Morgan and I'm a girl. It's not really the most popular name in Australia and yes people do relate it to a boys name. However I don't understand how people can call it an ugly name for a girl, if you don't like the name then don't call your kid it. But don't critisise others for calling their child that, I love my name and I can't imagine being called anything else. Morgan is a name used for both sexes which is the same with many names around the world and this will continue as people call their kids whatever they want these days. The name Morgan is probably the least of anyone's worries. If a celebrity tomorrow called their child Morgan it would become one of the most popular names around the world because an influential person used it. Nicole kidman was payed out because she called her daughter Sunday but that name will grow in popularity now that it has been used. So when it comes to names I think it's each to their own.

I have known two people with the name Morgan so far and they have both been girls.

My name is Morgan. Morgan is a very high class, aristocratic name that I think is a very good choice for a female such as me. It's very uncommon due to its uniqueness, but often describes a person of good character or importance.

It's a pretty name, but I can't really get passed the "Morg" part of it, but it's still an interesting name. I know a guy named Morgan and the name actually suits him. So (pre-natal) parents; don't be deterred of the fact that this name is used on girls. It's a nice name that suits both.

Morgan was, indeed, a name from Arthurian legend. However, anyone who studies the subject in depth knows that Arthur had TWO sisters. Morgause was his half-sister, with whom Arthur had Mordred. It's unfortunate that the two sisters have become one in "popular legend", and Morgan associated with incest, and not her true betrayal of Arthur.

Morgan is a very mysterious name. Think about its many derivations and meanings, and all I get is a view out of a beautiful window looking out somewhere across Ceredigion Bay. I'm probably biased to say this, but I don't care. In my classes at school there were always boys and girls called Morgan, and so I think it's suited for either gender.

The fact that the Morgan le Fay reference puts people off is pretty harsh. Think about all that power! And her brother was King Arthur, and her son was Mordred, so think of all the legends she's in. She's integrated into Welsh history one way or another.

Morgana is another version of this name. I hope more people like that one, because I'm sick of people slagging other names off because they're too masculine. Think about the name Jules. It's short for Julian. Julian is actually a masculine roman name, but because you see more women called Julian, you assume its a very feminine one. Anyway, Morgana sounds more feminine to me because it has an extra letter on the end, as is more commonly noted by Greek names. Extra syllable = extra feminine.

This is one of my cousins names (girl) and her brother and sister are Drake and Robin. My dad swears they were all named after pirates.

I'd prefer this as a last name or either sex, a middle name for girls and a first name for boys. It seems a little too strong for a girls first name. Although it does suit my cousin, since she has a VERY strong personality.

Morgan was NOT 'originally a boys' name' it can be derived from 'Morcant' which is masculine or 'Morgen' which is feminine. If a woman is named Morgan, it comes from the feminine origin (Morgan le Fay).

One of my best friend's names is Morgan, and the name fits her perfectly. She is strong (mentally) and isn't too concerned with looks or girly pleasures. She is a wonderful friend, so this name will always sound nice to me. In my opinion, it is more of a girl's name than a boy's, but that's probably because I know two female Morgans, and no males. I call her Morg a lot, and she hates it because it reminds her of a morgue, but that really doesn't stop me from calling her that.

I don't understand why this name is being used for boys sometimes since it is clearly, based on the legendary usage, for girls.

Anyway, this name is not pretty. It has the "mor" of "morbid," "mordant," "moribund," "morkin," "mormal," "mortling," "morphine," and "mortify;" the "morg" of "morgue;" the "org" of "disgorge," "engorge," and "regorge;" and it rhymes with "Gorgon," "organ" (which can have a meaning of sexual euphemism), and "Sorgen" (German for "sorrows").
-- greta-elisif  12/22/2010
I know that Morgan can be used for both boys and girls, but in Welsh popular novels, Morgan is always a male name, and always seems to be used for huge, ultra-masculine men with black hair, dark blue eyes and a slightly threatening manner (although they usually turn out to be gentle giants), so that I now associate it with the "strong, silent type".

It's much more likely that the boom in the use of the name Morgan in the 1980's was because of the actress Morgan Fairchild, who began making appearances in television as early as 1976. She was also in A Bullet for Pretty Boy 1970 though the role is uncredited. [noted -ed]

Personally, I have never liked this name. Something about the way it sounds is just so ugly to me. But if you're going to use it, PLEASE use it on boys only! The trend of giving boys names to girls is becoming increasingly annoying, and for a girl this name will sound ridiculously dated in about twenty years. There really is nothing feminine about the name Morgan anyway... I just don't get it. Please, people, lets use names for their original genders. This name comes from a surname, and as a custom surnames were most often given to sons as a first name to carry on his mother's maiden name. That's why this was originally a boy name! And with a few exceptions, I think that names that were originally meant for a gender should be left to that gender. You're not making a statement by giving your daughter a boy name, especially one as trendy and dated as Morgan. You're just breaking tradition. Not cool.

I'm a woman and my name is Morgen, (spelt with an e). I've never seen it spelt with an e ever. I think it's a better name for men, especially with the e, the e just makes it sound more dominating and strong. I've been told the name fits me only cause I'm 5' 11" and I have a really angry face and I look very Russian. The name looks like it would only belong to someone really mysterious and dominating. I'm not really into how it sounds on women, too rough for them especially if you're feminine. I like my name on me though, even though I'm a chick.

My first name is Morgan, and I'm a girl. For those of you who say there are no famous women named Morgan, I say: Morgan le Fay, Morgan Fairchild, Morgan Eastwood (yes, Clint Eastwood's daughter), Morgan Fox (NOT Megan Fox, MORGAN Fox, she was a model in the 80s), Morgan Webb, Morgan Lily, Morgan Brittany, the list goes on.
As for it being a male name originally, WHO CARES?! Besides, I think if a name has been considered feminine since the year 1136 or so, it can be feminine now. Chill out. As for it being too "strong" or "ugly" for a girl... that's just silly. I'm a model, and am very feminine looking. Growing up I was very "princessy" probably more than most of your precious "Elizabeths" and "Sarahs". I've only met a couple guys named Morgan, and it sounds way too feminine for them. However I do see how it could be used for a man. I think, unfortunately for you crazies, Morgan is a truly unisex name. Like I say, it's stood the test of time; whereas other names common now are new/made up and even misspelled.
The "morgue", "organ", etc. point is also moot. I was never bothered by this or made fun of for it. I get compliments on my name all the time. It's not as common as others and it truly is strong! That isn't a bad thing! I'd rather seem like a strong, confident, bold woman than a weak, fragile, and "sheep-like" follower. I'd rather be seen as a leader.
As for it being a "surname only". That's garbage. Again, since Morgan le Fay used it as her first name and those legends originated in the 1100s, I think it's stood the test of time. My husband's name is Scott, and that's a common last name as well. But when people hear the name Scott, they don't go on and on about how it's strictly a surname.
If you all want to diss my name, my GOOD name, then so be it. But I love it, I can't imagine my parents ever giving me another name. There was no question that they would name me Morgan from day one. I would have no issue passing it down to a DAUGHTER of mine.

Morgan has been considered feminine in mainstream society since 1977. Despite Morgan le Fay, it was still popularly viewed as a last name and/or boy name until 1977, when it entered the top 1000 for girls.

My great grandfather, great uncle, and stepfather are all named Morgan, and my brother's middle name is Morgan. I find it interesting that it was always in the top 300 for boys until about the year 2000. Unfortunately, it now seems to be just one more originally masculine name now predominantly considered 'female.' To me it sounds incredibly masculine. I also babysit a four-year-old boy named Morgan and it fits him so perfectly :)

Anyway, the fact that it sounds and was originally completely masculine is largely irrelevant. It is what it is - mostly used for girls now even though it should at least be unisex. I say to all Morgan's - whether you be male or female, be proud of your name and hold your head up high because of it :)

Morgan Nicholls is a bass, guitar and keyboard player. He used to be in The Senseless Things playing bass, made an album (Organised) on his own (under the name Morgan). He also played the bass in The Streets and Gorillaz (Probably becoming the inspiration for the Gorillaz character Murdoc Niccals). But when Chris Wolstenholme of Muse broke his wrist, he filled in for him. When Chris came back, Muse decided to keep Morgan for live support (e.g. additional backing vocals, keyboard, guitar and bass), to avoid backing tracks.

I love this name. On a boy, it's very strong but still beautiful, and on a girl, it's just downright gorgeous!

This name, to me, is the word "Organ" with an "m" at the beginning. This name is very, very hideous on a girl. There is this snobby half chinese girl named Morgan at my school. She has heaps of freckles and short hair. Since she is mean, we call her "Porgan", "Dorgan", "Borgan" or "Gorgan". But she didn't ruin this name for me. I find this name ugly, still. It makes me think of a pig. And the 'org' sound is gross. But on the other side, I do find this name good. For a word. Because in German, morgen means morning. But as a name in English, I hate the fact that it rhymes with "Organ".

This is my brother's name, and I really can't imagine it on a girl, even though I know it can be for either gender. But I think it's a nice name, it sounds cool and nice meaning behind it!

I think this is a gorgeous, handsome sounding name for a boy. However, when it comes to using this name for girls, "Morgan" doesn't really scream "girly" enough for me in my honest opinion. I prefer "Morgana" for a girl. (:

I personally can't stand this name. It always makes me think of organ's which kind of make me feel sick. If I was going to name a child Morgan they would have to be a boy. To me there is nothing pretty or princess- like about it.

My birth name was Morgan and I'm a woman born in '92. My mother was considering other girl names like 'Emily' but wanted something that sounded less 'babyish' (in her words). So she gave me a strong name. Which doesn't suit a baby girl at all. She thought it was unique and hadn't met anyone male or female named Morgan. She also liked the meaning she read in a baby name book 'by the edge of the sea'. Very romantic meaning, however people rarely know this and will judge names by how they sound rather than the pretty wording you read. I think this name sounds ugly. It's harsh and masculine and only classic as a male name.

I was receiving mail addressed to Mr. Morgan Lastname and had my gender recorded as MALE at my new doctor's office and the dentist. Not everyone knows how to spell it either. I've gotten Morgen and Morrigan. Also it's confused with other names, Megan, Jordan.

I love the name Morgan. And yes, my name is Morgan and I'm a girl. It's more popular now than when I was growing up (born in the 80's). I always loved being the only Morgan in school and even though a lot of times people call me Megan and I get registered as a boy, I still love it.

I don't understand why there needs to be so many negative and almost rude comments about the name. I think it's a great name for a boy or a girl.

Morgan always reminds me of the word "morgue," which is a place to store dead bodies/corpses... this association is not attractive at all. Also, I think Morgan is too harsh sounding and too masculine for a girl.
