User comments for Morgan
Morgan is a more ancient name than the separation between the Brithonic (Celtic) cultures. Morgan is as well Welsh, Cornish and Breton (still popular in Breton).
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]
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 :)
