- Personal experiences with the name Morgan: | Edit
my best friend in grade school was named Morgan (girl)
We named our first daughter Morgan. I have loved the name ever since I first heard it used as a girls name (I was Junior High at the time).
My name is Morgan(born in 1985), and didn't know many other female "Morgan's" growing up. I wish my name was a bit more feminine(my middle name is "Dayle"), but its not too bad. No one ever has a hard time pronouncing it, although I have been called "Meagan." My sister's names are Ashton(1987) and Jordyn(1992), my parent's liked the whole "boy name for girls."
