"Yes, I named ny daughter Tegan in 1991. And she was nameless for about 4 weeks because I could not decide on a name until I found it in an old, old library baby name book. It's Celtic and means "a doe" or in Welsh "doe eyed beauty>". No girls had that name back in 1991. Then the name became crazy around 2006ish. Everyone loves ny daughter's name. And people are curious about her as a person too. She's unique in many ways." Aug. 30, 2019:

"My name is Tegan and for a long time hardly anybody was called it but now it?s very common and is spelt in different ways. However I love my name even though it is often misspelled and pronounced incorrectly the meaning of the name in Welsh is beauty/beautiful. Which is a reason why my mother name me Tegan."

"My 30-year old daughter's name is Tegan. It is mispronounced ALL THE TIME. I didn't know there were alternative spellings when we named her. Spelling it Teagan or Teegan would have taken care of the pronunciation problem but I really like it spelled Tegan. When I looked the name up at the library, I found it is Celtic and means "a doe." I rarely see its Celtic meaning on baby name sites. I had not heard it is a unisex name until she met a boy named Teagan." Dec. 15, 2017:
"I loved the name Tegan as it wasnt well known and called my daughter this in 2007 since then she has been friends with 5 different Tegans around the same age." Sep. 23, 2017:
"My 6 year old daughter is named Tegan. We pronounce it Tay-gan. Many people didn't like her name at first and tried to talk me out of it. But I have never been a person who cares about what others think. I have never regretted my decision. She loves her name and so do I. She even loves her nickname, Tiggy or Tiggy Wiggy."
