Although I was born in 1990, and thats apparently the year with the most Megans born, I've only encountered 3 on a day to day basis at any one point in my life. So it never seemed to common to me. I have alot of nicknames megatron is a big one. Meg, maggie, momo, minnie, nutmeg. I have more but those are the most connected to Megan. I love my name but dislike immensely when people throw a bunch of extra e's and a's and even h's. Its better spelt simply in my opinion.

My mom was hesitant to name me after my great grandma Grace because she didn't want me to think I had a "old lady" name, but I absolutely love the "Megan Grace" combo. I'd suggest that you spell it "M-E-G-A-N" because then when people ask you how it's spelled you can just say "the easy way."" Jun. 21, 2009: Report as inappropriate

I don't hate the name, but I don't like how common or juvenile it sounds. I do have close friends and relatives that call me Meg though, and I like that.

  • "I was born in 1987. I would love the name if it only weren't so popular and so 80s-90s. I feel like it's really going to date me when I'm old. In my high school class of about 100 people there were 5 Megans. Each got a number so I was Megan #2 throughout high school.

  • "My name is Megan, but I was born in 1968. As a child I hated my name. No one had ever heard of it, knew how to spell it, etc. I never knew any other Megans and thought my parents were cruel by giving me a "weird" name. Then in the 1980's the name came out of nowhere (Well, actually it was the Thornbirds) and exploded in popularity. Suddenly Megans were everywhere and had all of these off-the-wall ways of spelling the name. I've grown to accept the name as O.K., but I would have preferred to be named something else."
