"I love being a Raegan! In January of 91', when I was born, the name was not very popular. I am forgiving of misspellings (including my first birthday cake), but hey, life's not that serious! The most common spelling mistakes are Reagan and Regan. When meeting someone for the first time, I tell them my name is Raegan, like the President, but spelled better :) I do get compliments on my name often, though." Jun. 25, 2012:
"My name is Raegan.I was born September 18, 2001! A week after 9-11.i found three meanings but two are boys noble, little king, and son of little king. My middle name is Jean. My two older brothers names are Riley and Nicholas." Jun. 5, 2012:
"I absolutely love having the name raegan it is so original and i dont personaly know anyone named raegan that it is spelled this way so nobody gets you confused with other people like sophie nate or john" May. 14, 2012:
"Our daughter is due in the next few days and we will be naming her Raegan Margaret after two of her great-grandmothers. We wanted an English or Irish name and Raegan fit perfectly. We were aware that people may mispronounce or misspell her name in the future but her name will mean so much to her when she is older knowing that RAEchel was her great-grandmothers name." Apr. 2, 2012:
"We are expecting a daughter due anytime now. Raegan Marie Charles. Im sure we will call her Ray Charles for short... :) Love the name!" Mar. 3, 2012:
"My Daughter is called Raegan and like others I chose this spelling so she wouldn't be called Reegan however, she still gets called Reegan. But I still love the name and she gets called 'Rae' or 'Raegy Faye' as that's her middle name. I didn't realise until she was about 3 months that the Exorcist was where I'd originally heard the name needless to say her head had never spun 360 and she's an Angel. :o)" Mar. 2, 2012:
"Im due in January and we are naming out daughter Raegan Michelle. My mother in law says Ronald every time I say Raegan but I know its already growing on her lol I have always liked this name and when my husband and I got married the women that married us was named Reagan. So I found this other spelling which I like more and it just seems meant to be." Dec. 16, 2011:
"My name is Raegan, I always enjoy watching people attempt to spell my name lol. Never in my life have I ever seen or heard of people with my name thats spelt like ours:D. I only get called Raegan when Im in trouble! otherwise, its either "Rae" which i LOVE being called or "RJ" cuz my name is Raegan Julia. anyway, i dont like how its becoming so popular! >:( stop people lol jk jk i dont mind, but still" Nov. 11, 2011:
"My 5 yr. old daughter is named Raegan, which totally made since because the other spelling of Reagan should be pronounced as Reegan. I always get compliments on her name. We call her Rae for short, which is my father's middle name. I like to believe that her name makes her a part of him as well. I definitely don't regret the name or the spelling. A lot of people call her Ronald Reagan though!!" Nov. 7, 2011:
"I am 8 and like the name. On letters its always spelled Regen Regan Reagan.I hate it!I think the real proper way to spell it is my way!My nicknames are..: Rae-Rae Rae Raeggy poo and Raeggy.The poo one gets on my nerves but I guess its okay." Nov. 2, 2011:
"My 20 month old daughters name is Raegan (pronounced Ray-gan not Ree-gan) Patricia Lynne. We call her Rae-Rae, Ra-Ra and Raegan when she's naughty. We constantly get the exorcist thing but we just named her from shakespeares "king lear"and that it means royalty. she constantly gets called Reegan as well which I hate and I'm constantly telling people off - its spelt Rae-gan say Rae-gan lol anyway I have absolutely no regrets about naming her this beautiful name" Sep. 30, 2011:
"WOW I AM GLAD I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO GOT MY DAUGHTER'S NAME FROM THE EXORCIST MOVIE. THAT MAKES ME FEEL A BIT BETTER LOL
WE NAMED HER RAEGAN WITH THAT SPELLING BECAUSE IT MAKES MORE SENSE IF YOU SHORTEN IT. "REA" MAKES NO SENSE BUT "RAE" DOES. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE NAME AND I DON'T THINK I WILL EVER GET REGRET THE NAME I HAVE CHOSEN FOR MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER. OH BY THE WAY, ONE OF THE NICK-NAMES SHE HAS THAT I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYONE ELSE MENTION IS "RAEGANOID" PERSONALLY I THINK IT'S CUTE BUT SHE TOTALLY HATES IT LOL" Sep. 13, 2011:
"We are expecting in January and love the name just not set on a spelling yet. So many out there." Sep. 13, 2011:
"My name is Raegan Danyale and I was born in 1983. My parents decided to name me Raegan because it is similar to my father's name Rayford. My dad once told me he got my name from the movie The Exorist. As a child I did not like my name because whenever my family and I would travel I could never find my name on souvenirs and people at school would call me Ragedy Ann (even though I was never ragedy...lol). As a teen I began to love my name because of its uniqueness. Now that I'm an adult the name has become pretty popular. Some of my nicknames include Rae (my fav), Rae-Rae (least fav), Raegs, R-Dawg and Raeg-let-Roug-let (from my dad)." Jul. 20, 2011:
"My husband & I named our little girl Raegan Brooke when she was born in 2009. I've always loved the name & wanted her to go up with a strong name as she became a woman, something that didn't make her sound like a wimpy girl. So far she fits the name perfectly....she is a spitfire in every way, yet still very compassionate & loving. We often call her "Raegs" for short." Jul. 8, 2011:
"We also have a Raegan Alexis! We were going to name her Alexis Raegan but a few weeks before she was born there were at least 5 Alexis's born in our area. My sister-in-law suggested a switch and we did it. Her name is a perfect fit for her!" Jun. 20, 2011:
"I named my little girl Raegan and spelled it this way because i like to be different and wanted my girls to know that its ok to be different. Going with the flow isnt always the right thing. My Raegan is so sweet and thoughtful..she puts everyone before herself..so im not sure the meaning "little ruler" fits her other then the fact that she follows no one! She is herself no matter who shes around and i love her for that! I love my Raegan Alexis!" Apr. 5, 2011:
"My daughters name is Raegan and she loves it born 2003." Mar. 14, 2011:
"My name is raegan, and it is normally spelled reagon, raygen, reagan, or even ragen.
i pronounce it "ray-gan." i met one other person wiht the same name sounded and spelt the same too!" Mar. 7, 2011:
"My name is Raegan and I am proud to have a name as unique as it is. I have had a few misspellings (including a Raaegan from my mother! nice to know you care, mom!) but other than that being a Raegan has been amazing. I live in Canada and so far I have never known anyone named Raegan with that spelling. Born in '96 if you were wondering. I wish this name would become more known just so people can actually spell and say it." Feb. 3, 2011:
"My name is Raegan and I love it! Knew a girl who was also called Raegan because of me!... The Ronald Reagan comments could stop though!!" Jan. 17, 2011:
"We named my daughter Raegan. I call her "Rae" and sometimes Ray Gun! Her older brother's name is Trey so we have Trey and Rae. I LOVE the name." Jan. 3, 2011:
"My brand new, absolutely beautiful, granddaughter is named Raegan Elizabeth and it fits her to a T." Dec. 11, 2010:
"My daughter's name is Raegan Jordan and she was born in 2002. I love the name, mostly because it is unique but sounds great and trendy. But if you ask her, she will say she doesn't like it. I hope one day she will like the uniqueness of her name. It means "little ruler" and she certainly has lived up to that! We don't get very many references to Ronald Reagan but I agree with other posters (and frankly think HE spelled his name wrong - this is the correct phonetic spelling!). She hates to be called Rae Rae. One person used to say REEgan but not too many. Most just spell it wrong (Reagan) which annoys me. Had no idea about Exorcist. We got it from a Lifetime Movie. No real nick names for it. She just likes Raegan and that's all!" Dec. 10, 2010:
"my name is raegan and i love it it is not that pop. and i think that it is a creative and cool and i was born on feb. in 2000 and on feb.23 and people have nicknames for me like reagy reagabutt reag sis" Oct. 29, 2010:
"My name is Raegan (no middle name). I used to hate my name because it was so unique and I wanted to fit in. Now I love my name. A lot of people spell my name wrong but most people pronounce it correctly. My mom got my name from the movie "The Exorcist" but didn't like the spelling of the character's name (Ragan). She wanted it phonetically correct which is why it's Rae-gan. My nicknames have been Rae, Ragu, and ganny-ray. I love my name!" Aug. 24, 2010:
"I named my little girl Raegan Maria, my Dad wanted to call me Raegan but they chose Lauren instead, I have always loved the name Raegan and luckily my partner agreed! It's a beautiful name and unique which is why I love it so much. We cal our little girl Rae- Rae sometimes and it annoys me so much when people call her Regan - clearly as stated above phonetically Raegan is Ray and Regan is Ree!" Aug. 20, 2010:
"Our daughter was born in 1996 and we called her Raegan Pamela Elizabeth. It is not a popular name in Australia at all. Often she is called Regan. If you look at it phonetically Rae says Ray not Ree, so I have no idea why people mis pronounce it all the time. Raegan is a beautiful name with out being too different. She has two sisters Trinity & Kartia (like the Russian Katya)." Jul. 21, 2010:
"My husband and I named our daughter (born Nov 2009) Raegan Rose. We got it from watching a michael Jackson movie and heard the name raegan we liked it and decided thats what we would name our daughter." Jul. 16, 2010:
"my daughter is called Raegan, she was born september 2002 and i got it from the excorsist film! i have never met another 'Rags' and i love it!!" Jun. 16, 2010:
"I was born 9/22/92 and my name is Raegan Marissa. I don't really like my name it is tho unique. My mom likes unique-ish names, my sisters names are Layne and Peyton, so yeah. I hate Ronald Reagan jokes with a passion, but at least he was one of the bests presidents." Jun. 6, 2010:
"My daughter was born 18th january 2010 and her name is Raegan Patricia Lynne - me and my husband knew from the moment that we were having a girl that her name would be this - it really is a beautiful name xx" Jun. 2, 2010:

My Name Is AWESOME <3" May. 13, 2010:
"My name is Raegan and my friends always call me Raegie, Rae, or Rae Rae. Every where I go people are always making up nicknames for me. I agree the Ronald Reagan jokes or so not funny. They make no sense. One of my best friends name is Raegan. With the same spelling. She is the first person I have met like that. Oh and my middle name is Alexandira. Just for anybody serching for names." Apr. 18, 2010:
"I have a two year old daughter named Alayna Raegan. We call her Raegan. I heard the name from my mother-in-law while I was pregnant and ended up loving it. She's been given nicknames of Raegie and Rae Rae. South Carolina." Mar. 7, 2010:
"Hi my daughters name is Raegan Patricia Lynne and I love her name. I love that it is so unique. I have always wanted the name since I first heard it in shakespeare (king lear) and she really suits it. When people ask her name the do get a bit confused as its not a very common name in the uk and they pronounce it ree-gan and I have to correct them but I don't mind because its a talking point." Mar. 6, 2010:
"my names raegan and all the people pronounce it ree-gin and so my parents told the school that the new spelling is R-A-Y-G-I-N. its funny." Feb. 13, 2010:
"I, too, often had nicknames relating to Ronald Reagan and I've seen every possible spelling (both very annoying). I always tell people to sound it out but apparently they don't know how to pronounce my name either! My family called me Raegie baby, which isn't too bad. There was 2 Reagans, 1 Regan, and 1 Raegan (me) in my freshmen Chemistry class of about 100." Jan. 27, 2010:
"i love the name raegan because it is the name of my best friend :) xx" Jan. 26, 2010:

Proud Grandma. England." Nov. 16, 2009:
"I love my name! And, just to clarify for curious Raegans, the name is Irish, is derived from Reagan, and means royalty (I Googled it). This spelling is easier to read and looks the way it sounds. Go Rae!" Nov. 12, 2009:
"I'm a guy from Canada, and I have lots of people comment about my name, always positive!" Oct. 23, 2009:
"My name is also Raegan. Raegan Lynn, I've only met a others with my name recently, it seems to becoming a more popular name now, but I was born in 1986, yet unlike all of the questions I get, my parents were not republican and I was not named after president Reagan. My mother wanted a unique name that wasn't easy to nickname and so she decided on Raegan." Sep. 10, 2009:
"I love having the name Raegan! It is annoying though when people ask if i'm related to ronald reagan. I have never met another raegan and would someday hope to." Jul. 5, 2009:
"My daughter is Raegan Lauren...she is almost seven months old. I love the name because of its Celtic origin...which matches her origins and her brother's name - Malcolm.

"My name's Raegan Maree and I'm 18 :). People always have spelled it wrong and think it's funny to ask me if I'm kin to Ronald Reagan (some people even call me "Reaganomics"). Unfortunately, this doesn't amuse me at all. Overall, I love my name because I've never met another Raegan but I would like it a whole lot more if people spelled it correctly and/or stopped assuming that my name really is Maegan and they're reading a typo." Feb. 26, 2009:
"i am proud to have named my daughter Raegan Leigha, i cant wait till shes old enough to read this site so i can show her how you all appreciate your uniqueness in the spelling of your names. Thanks, A loving father, ~S" Feb. 3, 2009:
"Hi. My name is Raegan Crewell,Im 12 years old and I live in Columbia, South Carolina. I love my name because nobody I know has the name.

But my name is so different I LOVE it." Jan. 11, 2009:

"My daughters name is Raegan Cathleen, she will be 8 yrs. old this month. She seems to love her name. We once took her on a tour of the air craft carrier Ronald Raegan and she was proud to tell everyone that her name was Raegan. She was only about 4 1/2 then. Sometimes people say it wrong too (Ree-gin) it annoys me because it's obvious that it's pronounced Ray-Gan. We call her Rae a lot and sometimes Rae-rae but mostly it's Raegan. It is a very strong sounding name and it fits her VERY well." Sep. 17, 2008:
"We named our daughter (2 1/2 years) Raegan Elizabeth. There were two factors in choosing this name. My husband is of Irish descent and our other daughter (6) is Karrigan Rose. So the name needed to be Irish and end in gan. We fell in love with the name Raegan and it fits her perfect. We often call her RaeRae, Rae or Rae-El(combination of first and middle name). Her name is very rarely mispronounced and we often get complimented on how beautifully unique her name is. There have only been a couple instances of being compared to Ronald Reagan but that isn't a bad thing. We couldn't imagine her name being anything other than what it is." Sep. 7, 2008:
"heyy everyone, my name is Raegan. Just Raegan .. no fancy other name on the end just Raegan. I do love it although i can't quite understand why my mum called me that when she was thinking about naming me Paris or May ?!?! But then again its unique and i am the only Raegan i know !!" Sep. 3, 2008:
"My Name is Raegan Elise Brown And my name is uniquer than all of yours" Sep. 3, 2008:
"My name is Raegan and I absolutely love it. When I was in Middle School, I would have jumped at the chance to change it in a heartbeat because, yes, i was sick of always having to correct everyone! However, now that I attend a fairly large high school, I can say with confidence that I'm the only Raegan in there! It's unique and I couldn't ask for a better name!!! =0D" Aug. 16, 2008:
"I have loved the name Raegan since I was in High School, so when I had my little girl a year and 1/2 ago I named her Raegan Marie- we love it for her." Jul. 28, 2008:
"My name is Raegan i am 14 ilove my name because its always different." Jul. 23, 2008:
"I named my daughter (now 4 months)Raegan Dakota. It was the first name my husband and I could agree on (plus, he's a big Ronald Reagan fan). She is a beautiful baby (of course, I'm biased!)and the name fits her perfectly! Quick question- how could it be pronounced wrong? It looks to me like "Ray-Gan"- like the president." Jul. 6, 2008:
"My name is Regan, pronounced the same way. My parents took the spelling from Shakespeare (King Lear) and the pronunciation from the president, since I was born late in 1979, about the same time he was declaring his candidacy. I grew up thinking it was a strange name and hearing people mispronounce it. Now that I'm a professional news reporter, I refuse to change my last name and adopt my husband's because my maiden name's so great. It makes for a fantastic byline!"
