I LOVE THIS NAME!!!!!!!!!!

Personal experiences with the name Morgana: | Edit

My name is Morgana -- it's unusual and pretty, sure, but to be honest, I don't like having it. People keep forgetting my name, or mispronouncing it (there's the "morg-ann-uh" pronunciation, which I have, or the "morg-on-uh" pronunciation, which everyone else thinks I have), or else just giving up and calling me Morgan instead. Sometimes teachers in school didn't even try to say it, and just called me by my last name instead. Don't name your girls this, please - it's more trouble than it's worth. :(
