Teagan

Pronunciation: TEE-gən (key)

Teagan, a form of the Irish men's name Teague, is becoming a feminine favorite in the U.S. on the model of Megan and Reagan. Unlike those names Teagan is almost always pronounced with a long "E," giving it a particularly bright and modern sound. In the U.K. you're more likely to encounter Tegan, an unrelated Welsh name.

people always comment that they love my daughter's name(Teagan)

My son Tegan is never forgotten because of his name and often mistaken for Keegan, but he always corrects them right away.

Such a beautiful name for a little girl. Makes me think she'll be a bit of a trouble maker, but in a good way.

All the Teagans I have known were very cute, freckles on the nose, and a bit artsy.

My friends daughters name is Teagen ('E' instead of 'A', for no reason except that's how she spelled it) She is mischievous, very smart and one of the most wonderful kids I've ever had the pleasure to be around.
