There have been the odd nicknames, though, I won't like: Morgasm, Morganism, Morganization, Organ, etc, to which I just roll my eyes. I also do get called Megan on occasion, which is annoying, and I always know when I get junk mail because it's addressed Mr. Morgan Lastname. But I love my name anyway. :) Of course now EVERYONE is naming their daughters Morgan, and when I'm at the playground with my own daughter, I'm constantly turning my head whenever I hear my name being called, LOL!"

  • "I was born in 1981, and was the only female Morgan I ever met for a long time. I was traumatized once in 3rd grade when my new teacher divided up the class into girls and boys by reading off the roll and having us go to one side of the room or the other. She made me go stand with the boys without even looking up to check and I bawled! I also used to hate the fact when I was little that none of the personalized license plates or pencils had my name. I got so sick of my name once that I insisted that everyone call me "Becky" for a couple weeks. As I got into my teen years, though I started noticing a lot of babies and little girls named Morgan, and now it's pretty trendy. I've even found a mini license plate with my name on it, so I guess everything is OK now :)" Feb. 19, 2009: Report as inappropriate
