Could Morgan work as a girl's name? We are pretty much decided on it if we have a boy but OH reckons it would work for a girl as well.

Opinions?

I only know a female Morgan (she sometimes goes by Mo) so it does work. she's 19 years old and lives in USA, where i think it is more popular than here in the UK.

Other than Morgan Freeman, i don't know any male Morgans - however i would still mainly associate it as a male name.

I have met one little girl called Morgan - Morgan Le Fey (SP?) In Arthurian legend was a woman so think it is fine although I prefer Morgana.

I also know a female Morgan. She's 15. I say it's a unisex name

Good news for my best beloved then! Sounds like a unisex name.

Yeah, it definitely could work... smile I think it's quite nice!

Morgan is a name we considered for our dd. It means lives by the sea. She was conceived and born into our Oceanside home in Florida. We chose a different name but I am holding Morgan in reserve!

Yes, definitely unisex, I know both. It's a great name, too, for a girl or a boy smile

I know a girl called Morgan. I think she's about 5.

I have a boy Morgan but it is definitely unisex. We were going to use it either way. It's a fab name. Gets lots of comments (positive lol )

I really don't like it. It rhymes with Organ, and has negative connotations for me.

Parisbanana Tue 08-Mar-16 15:39:55

I know Morgans of both sexes. I like it for both too smile

I really like it. Went to school with a female Morgan & know a couple of male Morgan's through work now.
Strangely think of it as a girls name not a boys name actually

Love Morgan, only know 2, both female.

Sophronia Tue 08-Mar-16 15:59:12

I think it's fine for both.

I know of a female organ age 11, she's from the USA

BettyBi0 Tue 08-Mar-16 16:28:03

I think it's becoming more of a female unisex name - kind of like Quinn.

I love Morgan for a girl! I know an English four yr old whose twin is Joshua.

I think of Morgan as a girls name, I know an adult woman called Morgan and of course there is Morgan Le Fay. I hadn't encountered it as boys name (except for Morgan Freeman) until a few years ago and to me it feels very much a female name.

I know a few of either sex. Its my sisters middle name too.

There is a Morgana in the Merlin TV series, I think that is nice too.

ddeemummy Sat 12-Mar-16 08:26:50

I like it for both. And know of people of both sexes called it

I like it for both (really like it for a boy but definitely think it's unisex.) I know one boy and one girl Morgan.
