I love this name, as I do most 'M' names.
I never knew the 'g' was silent, though. I'll admit, since it's my first time hearing it this way, I prefer it with the g sound. But I have no doubt I'll get used to hearing it as g-less.
Perhaps a nickname could be Morrie, though that seems like a word...

In the award-winning video game franchise "Dragon Age," the character Morrigan is a feared (sort of) and rude so-called "Witch of the Wilds" who may aid the protagonist(s). In the game, her name is pronounced mo-rih-gun.

Morrigan (or the more Irish looking Mórríghan) is what I want to call my daughter if I have one. I'm very interested to find out that the 'G' is silent, I've been saying it as "MOOR-ee-gan" so thank you whoever it was that specified that one. "MOOR-ee-an" is actually even prettier.

My whole life I had no idea the G was silent. Thankfully I've never met anyone named this and messed their name up, at least now I know. I think it sounds very nice the 'wrong' way and the 'right' way. It's very strong and regal sounding, I get the same vibes from Rhiannon.

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

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.

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.

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.

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