  • "My surname is Regan and my family pronounces it Ree-gan. I have been called Ray-gun my entire life, which I always attributed to people seeing it and thinking it was Reagan (I?ve always blamed this on Ronald Reagan). I?ve learned from this thread, though, that there are lots of people who think Regan should be pronounced like it is spelled Reagan. So strange to me. Anywho, I do like the name and changed my middle name to Regan when I got married and my second-born son?s middle name is also Regan. I taught a female Regan (also pronounces Re-gan) and her mom?s maiden name was Regan too, which was pretty cool." Sep. 11, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Regan (Reegan) My mother was an English major in college and found the name in King Lear. Although why my parents named me after such a horrible character I will never understand. I hated my name as a kid. I am 67 years old and unusual names were not that common when I was a kid. People always mispronounced my name or worse thought my last name was my first name. It wasn't until I was older that I actually liked my name." Oct. 18, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Reagen (pronounced REE-gen) I also have a friend and her name is Reagan Ray-gan" Oct. 7, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter is named Reghan Alexa and she suits her name beautifully. The spelling is a variation that we saw in an old book of names. Both her father and I loved it. We met a man from Ireland and he pronounced it "Reh-gun" - so that is how we pronounce it." May. 26, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Ragen , and no it's not spelled Regan in my world. At first i hated my name .. I mean to say every teacher would get it wrong, and others would call me Rags, which sounds like a 'rag' that you would clean stuff with, now that i'm older I don't mind it, like at least it's not like every other 'megan' in the world probably the most common name, now that i'm older i learned to like it. it's also very close to Megan and is pronounced Ray-Gen. Often like Megan's." Dec. 22, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • ""Regan" pronounced Ray-gun is not any different than "Megan". People don't call anyone named Megan "Mee Gen". Why is there so much confusion I wonder? Just change the first sound.
