"We named our son Reagan in 1977. At the time we knew of only one person named Reagan (a man). We are proud of our 41 year old! Wish people hadn't started naming girls Reagan, though." Mar. 8, 2019:
"Love this name thinking of naming our baby this if it's boy we already have a son Morgan and daughter Madison." Jan. 23, 2016:
"My son, Reagan, was born in February of 1975. Reagan is a family surname, and honors his great-grandparents. In 1975, I only knew one person, a man, whose given name was Reagan, so it was unique at the time. Our Reagan has grown to be a handsome, strong and regal man. It's a great name for a guy!"

"Yes we love the name Reagan for a boy!!! That's what we're naming our son! :)" Jul. 19, 2011:
""Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." ~ Ronald Reagan
My son is due to be born in about 6 weeks. His name will be Reagan and he will remind me of this truth always. We think it's a very masculine name that brings to mind the leadership qualities of the great president." Jun. 29, 2011:

"If I have ever have a son I hope to name him Regan (REE-gan). I hate how it's becoming a girl name, as it is so masculine. So many great boy names are becoming girl names because it's "cute". I want to name him after a friend who's name means 'King', as Regan means 'Little King'. I'm glad to hear that young boys have gotten compliments on the name!" Mar. 13, 2010:

"I met a older man named Reagan, he was from Southampton England! His name was Reagan Parrish, and he was very kind. He told me he watched the RMS Titanic set sail from his family apartment when he was five!! He told me so many stories! Now whenever I go to visit my grandmother at the assited living place, I stop by his room, and drop off his favorite kind of tea as a gift! He tells me so many stories, sadly though, he's grown very sick, and won't live much longer. He was one of my closest friends!" Jan. 17, 2008:

"I am a girl and my name is Reagan. (RAY-GAN) I think it sounds a bit too feminine to be a boy's name. And, it doesn't HAVE to be acossiated with Ronald Reagan. Plus, if it were, why would it be so bad for a girl's name to be acossiated with the president? I think Reagan is a better name for a boy, honestly. But, no hate! :) Reagan is just fine for any gender, depending on your point of view! ;D" Jun. 26, 2017:
I am 14 years old and I have the name Regan(it sounds the same thing as Reagan)and a child would love to take the name of a president as Ronald Reagan

"We named our little boy, 'Regan' just because we wanted a name that is not-so-common but at the same time which sounds masculine and regal!! We love this name ..and the person we call by that name.. :)" Nov. 15, 2008:
"Our son was born in 2007 and is name is Reghan I think this may be the Irish way of spelling it for a girl but we liked it as it was different, we live in NZ and he is the only one we have heard of with this spelling, my cousin has a 3 yr old and his name is Regan, I was told the meaning is "little king"." Nov. 4, 2008:
"We had twins in June '07 - a boy and girl. We named our boy Reagan (prounouced Ray-gun). He looks just like my husband Ray, so we have a joke where we call him Ray Again! Anyway, I hear you! I always thought it was a male name until I named him that, and now everyone is saying they know several girls with the same name! My sister-in-law being one of them! I've always thought it sounded more masculine than feminine. So many boy names have been taken over by girls!" May. 18, 2008:
"I want to name my son (due in July) Regan but I fear the name has been taken over by girls and that he will hate me for it. Persoanlly, I think it sounds regal and tough...reminding me of a knight ready to go out to battle. What all the hub-bub is for the girls....I don't know but I'm kinda fed up with them taking all the cool boy names." Apr. 28, 2008:
