I like the name Megan but would like to find out how it is seen. I've only just recently started taking in an interest in names so don't know much at all! I've been looking at the stats but to be honest it doesn't seem to help me get much of an idea just how popular its been if you see what I mean! Has it ever been as popular as, say, Emily or Jessica are now?
I have read on here that Megan is seen as 90s name - is this right. I want to give DD a name that is timeless so would probably not choose it if this is the case. Or is Megan a classic?
As someone who grew up in Wales, I see it as a rather old fashioned name; I don't really understand its recent popularity. There are much prettier welsh names, such as Angharad, Carys, Catrin, Manon...
Lots of Megans in their teens yes but I also know younger Megans it is not one I am surprised to hear at work (where I work with babies) Not a classic imo. I just checked and it was 26th in 2011 so still very much a popular name. have a look here to see its popularity.
