The name Megan was originally a Welsh diminutive form (pet name) of the name Margaret. The name Margaret, in turn, comes from the Latin word “margarita” taken from the Greek word “margarites”, meaning “pearl.” Margaret was extremely popular in Europe during the Middle Ages—probably influenced by Saint Margaret of Antioch, the patron saint of expectant mothers, and other early saints. One of many pet names deriving from Margaret, Megan is the Welsh version.
The name Megan first appeared in popular usage in the United States in 1952. After that, it steadily climbed in popularity until 1975, when it became one of the Top 100 most popular names for American girls. In the 1980s and 1990s, it held ultra-popular status, averaging the fifteenth most popular name during that twenty-year period. However, since the beginning of the 21st century, it seems to be declining in popularity once more, but still remains a very popular choice for Irish-American families.
Famous Megans include model and actress Megan Fox, who began her acting career in the TV series “Hope & Faith” and went on to a leading role in the hit movie “Transformers.” Another famous actress named Megan is Megan Mullally, best known for her hilariously funny portrayal of Karen Walker in the TV series “Will & Grace.” Well-known football coach and commentator Mike Ditka loved the name Megan so much that that’s what he named his daughter.
