Interesting name, a girl would probably be constantly correcting people on the pronunciation though.

This name was used in the book "Hounds of the Morrigan" as the collective name of the triple battle goddess. If you like Irish mythology then you should definitely read the book.

There is some disagreement over the meaning of the Morr¨ªgan's name. It can be straightforwardly interpreted as "great queen" (Old Irish m¨®r, great;[1] r¨ªgan, queen, [2] deriving from a hypothetical Proto-Celtic *M¨¡ra R¨©gan¨©-s.[3] However it often lacks the diacritic over the o in the texts. Alternatively, mor (without diacritic) may derive from an Indo-European root connoting terror or monstrousness, cognate with the Old English maere (which survives in the modern English word "nightmare") and the Scandinavian mara.[4] This can be reconstructed in Proto-Celtic as *Moro-r¨©gan¨©-s.[5] Current scholarship mostly holds to Morr¨ªgan being the older, more accurate form. The use of the term Queen could be misleading and her name could mean great hight or great power, understood in terms of a Druidess.

Morrígan is a witch and ally in the new game Dragon Age: Origins. The name suits her because she has feathers on her right shoulder and is very war-like.

I like it, but you'd probably get confused for Morgan a lot.

Sounds more masculine to me.

I believe there is a Taltos born named Morrigan in Anne Rice's The Witching Hour series.
