Comments and insights on the name Carrigan: | Edit

It was the movie, Casper The Friendly Ghost, that introduced me to the name of Carrigan!
The character was not what I wanted my daughter named after, but just the name itself! It was beautiful and unique! Mind you, our last name is Jones and I needed different first names for my children!!
I didn't like the spelling of Carrigan because her nick name would be Carrie which I didn't care for but Cara is what I heard as I said the name, Caragan. I played with the spelling and came up with Karagan!! So it's been 12 years and we call her both Kara and Karagan. We do get questioned on the spelling of the name but that's okay:)

Personal experiences with the name Carrigan: | Edit

I have a son named Carrigan, it is a great name!
After watching Casper, I named my daughter Kerrigan Noelle. I didnt like this spelling plus my mom wanted me to name her something with a K because my sister did and she thought it would be neat to have all her grandkids starting with a K but my baby sister denied her that and named her son Dylan so 2 out of 3 aint bad lol!!!!
