A famous bearer of this name is singer/actress Morgana King, who appeared in "The Godfather" (1972).

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:


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.

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. :(

This is a cool name. It's just a little too "witchy" for my taste.
kvpp88  9/25/2014
Morgana is one of my favorite names. It helps that I'm a medieval history / Arthurian romance enthusiast, and I like names imbued with those vibes (particularly names containing Ms, Ns, Os, Vs, and Ws). For all those saying "just go with Morgan" - Morgan is still used on boys as much as girls, and personally I find it to be too masculine to use on a daughter.

I actually knew a Morgana once, in college. I remember thinking her full name sounded very... upper-class, cultured (I think the Brits use the word "posh"); and while I believe came from money, she was actually quite down-to-earth. She was a nice, intelligent person - and very beautiful - so she's altogether a good association for the name.

It's a shame some people are put off by "witchy" vibes (personally, I like that the name implies something "magical" - and I say this as a Christian), or that people would go so far as to mistreat a child with this name (as one anonymous poster implied farther up).

I understand some people don't like the name but me and my husband love it. We are naming our second daughter Juliet Morgana! Very unique pretty name in my opinion. Which is what I was going for.

Morgana is a name given to a female sorcerer who is believed to have a relationship with a powerful alien who will sometime come to destroy this earth. This is what I got off my mind. But I believe there's a deep message behind that name.
Meekness1994  4/22/2015
Really love the meaning and the way it sounds, makes me think of a strong, passionate woman. First heard it on BBC's Merlin.

The name Morgana (I pronounce it "mor-gon-uh") sounds so much prettier than Morgan. I think Morgan should stay for boys, and Morgana should be used on girls instead of Morgan.
Sakusha  12/16/2015
My name is Morgana and I LOVE my name. Only met one other person with my name. Very uncommon.
Ganax3  2/14/2016
I love this name, just not the fact that it's associated with Morgana Le Fay and witchery.
― Anonymous User  3/2/2016
I have the name Morgan, and I agree that it sounds a little boyish. When I had a substitute once in class, she called my name for attendance and looked for one of the boys. Then I called "here" and she looked a little surprised. Morgana is a beautiful name and I would love that name.
― Anonymous User  5/30/2016
I think it is a strong name. I named my daughter Morgana after Morgana Le Fey, King Arthur's Sister. She was written as an ugly child but grew in beauty and power as she grew older. I wanted my daughter to have a strong name attached to a strong character so she could strive to be able to have the strength to lead the pack instead of follow it. Currently she is a nationally ranked dancer as well as martial artist so I hope she will continue to follow her passions.
(at the time of writing she was only 8)

To all those who say they are having trouble being called Morgana take a lief from my daughter, someone asked if she was a witch (she was 6) without batting an eye she said "no but I am evil" and merrily skipped away.

I find this name to be a beautiful alternative to Morgan, which I find to be rather harsh and masculine on girls. You'd never find Morgan on a girl in Wales.
Quro  5/29/2017
Personally, I find the name Morgana magical, but good, and associate it with the awesome Morgana from Persona 5 (even though he is a guy) and is voiced by the amazing Cassandra "Cassie" Lee Morris.
