I am Welsh born & bred (& Welsh speaking), and I can tell you that Morgan is definitely a BOY's name. If you wish to call your daughter Morgan, then that's your choice. But for those of you that don't know the history or language, don't try to highjack and claim it as a girl's name

You know what, I actually really like the name Morgan Hayley or Hayley Morgan. Those two names just ring in my head and flow so well. But for some odd reason, the name Morgan sort of reminds me of oatmeal, but I like it just the same. -Izzy

Morgan was the name of my son before he passed at a young age. But I spelled it Morgon.

To me Morgan is more or a girl name. I think it fits my lil girl well. Her name is Morgan Taylor

My name is Morgan and I am a girl it is this very issue that avril edwards has touched on that promted me to look in to the matter I found that Geoffrey of Monmouth was the first known person to use it as a girls name (morgan la fay) and that is unlikley that it was derived from the welsh name because in his time the welsh name morgan was spelt diferently. Please do not acuse us of highjacking your language just because you have put no more research into the matter than us. By the way please think twice before naming your little girl morgan, or ar least let her grow her hair long, I hated being mistaken for a boy.

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.

I think I would use this as a girls name..

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.
