Megan is a lovely Welsh name. I have a 75 year old cousin called Megan. I don't think she's a chav.

What LEM said

A name isn't chavvy

I don't understand why anyone would think Megan is 'chavvy'.
It's a nice, normal name.

Worrying about being thought 'chavvy' is really chavvy OP.

Get a grip.

Megan is a lovely name, not that your cousin needs your approval.

TidyDancer Fri 13-Sep-13 12:02:33

Why are you asking? Does your cousin want this opinion or do you think it's a chav name?

It's not for me, I know a horrible Megan so could never use it, but it's not an awful name. And not chavvy.

I think of Megan as being a traditional Welsh name, sweetly old fashioned.

'Chavvy' definitely doesn't come to mind.

LEM: so right she said it four times!

It's not chavvy, but I do find it a very ugly-sounding name and cannot understand why it's been popular for so long. It makes me think of a clunky metal robot, don't know why.

Agree that it is the people who 'judge' names that have a problem in my opinion.

Personally I wouldn't choose Megan, but only because I prefer more feminine sounding names. But if your cousin likes it, then that is her choice!!

PoppadomPreach Fri 13-Sep-13 13:37:52

I imagine only really thick people would find it an unacceptable name and start a thread about it. What's your name, OP, just for future reference.....

SoftSheen Fri 13-Sep-13 13:38:39

Megan is a lovely, traditional name- very good choice smile

bundaberg Fri 13-Sep-13 13:41:54

Megan??? not chavvy in the slightest!
it's a lovely name

rachel234 Fri 13-Sep-13 13:43:16

It really shouldn't matter what we think!! Or has your cousin asked you to canvas opinions on the internet for her?

Some names are chavvy (Chardonay??) - but Megan isn't one of them.

Rhubarbgarden Fri 13-Sep-13 14:02:26

hmm

Er, NO. This is my ultimate ideal name for a little girl, and i cant use it sad

burberryqueen Fri 13-Sep-13 14:36:40

no it is not 'chavvy' but i would hesitate before using it these days because of Meg in Family Guy

Bowlersarm Fri 13-Sep-13 14:37:22

Megan is fine.

I don't even think Katie Hopkins could find Megan chavvy!
