There were four people in my town at my regional high school. I found out that there were about two more. Everyone who talked about a Megan would have to ask which one.

Me (May)

Although I have grown to like megan over the years, I usually go by Me pronounced May. My parents and friends thought there were too many megans and megs when i was little and wanted a graceful, pretty nickname for me, so they went with may.
I love the name!

My name is Megan and I love it! My favorite spelling is Megan. (Followed by Meaghan, Meghan, Meagan, Meggan, Meghann, ect.) There are so many ways to spell this name, but I like M-E-G-A-N best! I pronounce it Meh-gan, but many people pronounce it May-gun. I prefer my pronunciation best!

My eldest daughter is called Megan.It is a Welsh name that comes from the warrior Queen Megan and is many centuries old.It is a beautiful, strong name that has stood the test of time.My Great Grandmother was also a Megan. My daugher gets called Meg or Meggie by her friends.Much to her annoyance we also call her Meggie-pop-a-loo-lees! (Though I don't think it's commonly used!)

My cousin's name is Megan spelled like that. M-E-G-A-N. I love her name! I like the name spelled Meaghann
written by Magen, September 25, 2009
My name is Magen and it is pronounces may-gen which is different from meh-gen. I love my name although I think megan is too common, Magen is unique nd I have never net anyone else with their name spelled like mine. It puts a unique twist on a rather common name. i love it!!!
