Thursday's Name Game

Gender:  Female
Character From:  The Iron Fey Series from Julie Kagawa

Meanings and history of the name Meghan:
  • Besides being a cognate of Margaret and meaning 'pearl', Meghan is also a name in its own right, meaning 'brave, bold'.
Personal Experience:
  • Growing up I was really good friends with a girl named Meghan and spelled that way too.  She never really mentioned anything about people spelling her name wrong, but I know it bothers certain people.  What do you think about this?  Do you get upset when people misspell your name?  Lisa is a pretty easy name and doesn't get misspelled often so I don't really have an opinion.
