So today I was watching a youtube vlog by a girl named Lindsey, who has a sister named Megan.
I realize we pronounce Megan differently.
I've always said Megan as MAY-gen, and Meg as MAY-g
She says Mehg-en, with a short e, and Meg the same way (w/o the -en, obviously)
How weird am I, right? Is this a regional thing?
How do you pronounce Megan? What is your general location (if you feel comfortable sharing)? South? East Coast? Mid-West? England or Australia or where ever else you berries might be?

I say (and have heard) it both ways. The soft e pronunciation seems to be a bit more prevalent in the US, and you know, I've not heard the name very much in other places.
I've never heard Meg pronounced with a hard a, though. Only ever with the soft E. Even if that person pronounced Megan as MAY-ghen.
