If your name is Morgan, you are a seeker of knowledge and motivated to make a contribution to the world and find meaning in life. You are able to analyze any situation and look at it with cleverness and imagination. At the same time, you truly dislike situations in which you fall into a boring routine or drudgery. Having things always changing is what captures your attention most, and that’s what you truly prefer. Of course, in order to make that happen, you are incredibly versatile, willing to take risks, and even travel to faraway places. This restlessness in your nature sometimes makes it extremely difficult for you to take advice from others, and consequently, your favorite working situations are those in which you can work independently.
Sometimes, again because of your inner restlessness, you can be intense and sensitive to the criticism of others. You are contemplative and thoughtful, and sometimes others don’t recognize that you are so deep in your personality. This causes you to be very concerned about being misunderstood. In general though, people are very drawn to your intense energy and vivaciousness, and are ready to accompany you on your next adventure!
The name Morgan comes from the Old Welsh boys’ name “Morchant.” It is thought that the name Morchant was derived from the Welsh word “mor”, meaning sea, combined with the old Celtic word “cant”, meaning “circle.” The name Morgan used often as a name for boys in Wales and Brittany (a region in France). In the U.S., Canada, and Scotland, it is used more frequently for girls.
The name Morgan is actually used in the United States both for girls and for boys, but much more commonly today for baby girls. For girls, Morgan came into popular usage in the United States in 1976, and by 1987, it was one of the Top 100 most popular girls names.
Two of America’s most prolific entertainers are named Morgan, one male and one female. Extraordinary actor Morgan Freeman’s list of film achievements is so long it’s impossible to choose just a few to include here. And beautiful blonde Morgan Fairchild has played so many television roles that again, it is difficult to list just a few. Perhaps one of her funniest, though, is as Nora Bing, the unabashedly naughty romance novelist mother of Chandler Bing on the sitcom “Friends.”
