Me and my husband chose this name for our little girl. It honors where my husband went to college. WVU in Morgantown, WV. When we chose the name it wasn't too popular. But now I hear it more and more.

Morgan is an old Welsh name, and it's a mans name. Morgana and Morgaine are lovely feminine versions. Morgan doesn't sound at all feminine; it's just been used by women recently and so people who don't know better think it's a woman's name. My brother's name is Morgan; no one teases him about it. His daughter's name is Morgana.
