I named my daughter Karrigan in 1996. A few years later, I was informed that the Hollywood name for Casper the friendly ghost's sister is Karrigan (???)
My daughter was named Karrigan in 1998 and I got this name from Casper. Although, the character was not very nice, I did a lot of praying that she would be the opposite of that character and she is so kind today.
