I find this name rather ugly and girls are named Morgan now too, so there's really no need for it.

Who cares if girls are named Morgan now? Morgana is still a name and people are still going to use it.

I love the name Morgana! I have names picked out for if I ever have kids, and Luna Morgana is one of them! Besides, it doesn't matter if Morgan is a girl's name too. Maybe some people just prefer the sound of Morgana over Morgan! I know I do (though Morgan is a great name too).

It's pronounced MOR-GAH-NA, as well as MOR-GAN-A.

I think Morgana is a beautiful and unique name, I have never met a person named Morgana. I also like Morgana a lot better than Morgan on a girl (to me Morgan sounds like a boy name only).

It sounds ugly, and it would be better to go for Morgan instead, as it's more common on girls nowadays.

Morgana is a strange name. It is unusual but still kind of pretty in a way. Much preferable to Morgan, which always seemed manly to me.

I believe Morgana is the name of Ursula's sister in The Little Mermaid 2.

There is an incredible mirage off the coast of Calabria in southern Italy where the neighbouring city of Messina is reflected on the water looking like a magical apparition. It is called the 'Fata (fairy) Morgana' because it was imagined it was created by Morgana.

I've ended up really liking this name. I much prefer it to the far more masculine and overused Morgan, which I have never liked, and never will. I really like the much more mystic/magical Morgana. :-)

Morgana is a name of ancient literary origin known to people as the wizard Morgana and is recounted in "The Life of Merlin" in year 1150. A character later of several poems in the Breton cycle, also the sister of King Arthur. It is able to be traced back to Celtic origin to the name Muirgen, variant of Mor "Sea".

November 1st is "La Festa d'Ognissanti" (in English: All Saint's Day), a day in which all saints not represented on the calendar are remembered.

Is also an Italian name, pronunciation, roughly:

Mohr-GHAN-Ah

Pronounce "Mo" as in "I need to Mow my lawn". "A", as usual, is said as in "Father".

Also pronounced mor-GAY-na.

My name actually happens to be Morgana. Personally, I like my name, but I have little patience for anybody who mentions Morgan Le Fey or Arthurian legend, too many people do. Also, it is a bit inconvenient to live in any sort of "bible-belt". Some people have judged me by my name and its association with witch-craft.
-- Anonymous User  4/19/2013
Isn't it interesting that merely adding the extra "a" at the end of Morgan completely changes the feel of the name. Some people may feel that extra letter is over-doing it, but I beg to differ.

Morgana has this mystical, exotic feel to it. Much more interesting than Morgan.

Unfortunately, this name is associated with several fictitious villains. Even without these associations, Morgana does sound a bit... spooky. It shall remain on my guilty pleasure list.

Morgana Macawber was the sorceress in the Disney animated television series, DuckTales.

I don't think Morgana is "ugly" and to be honest, I certainly don't think of a strong, overpowering "witchcraft" association whenever I hear this name. I agree it is quite "unusual", but I think of that in a good sort of way. :)

My mother named me Morgan and when I was little my friend from school asked if it was short for Morgana (she assumed it was). At the time I wished it was! Because Morgana is definitely a feminine name versus unisex.
-- S4acre  6/14/2014
My name is Morgana -- it's unusual and pretty, sure, but to be honest, I don't like having it. It's a hassle more than anything else.

People keep forgetting my name, or mispronouncing it; there's the "morg-ann-uh" pronunciation, which I have, or the "morg-on-uh" pronunciation, which everyone else thinks I have -- oftentimes, they just give up trying and call me Morgan instead. Sometimes teachers in school didn't even try to say it at all, and just called me by my last name.

Don't name your girls this, please - it's more trouble for the poor girl than it's worth. :(
