NOT A GIRL'S NAME
this name has the same meaning as the boys name but its for a girl!
Whenever I hear of people naming thier baby girls boys names (like Keegan, Aiden, etc...) I always feel bad for them, its as if the parents really wanted a boy :(
- Personal experiences with the name Keegan: | Edit
We names our daughter Keegan - she is 2 years old and it totally fits her. (Unlike a previous comment - we didn't pick Keegan becuase we wanted a BOY! It is used for both boys and girls!)
My husband is a teacher and it is very hard to choose names! We didn't want her to have a name that everyone else has it the class...too many olivia's!!
