    I'm from Canada (Ontario) and here it's pronounced Meg-in 90% of the time. I've also heard it with a "may" sound.

    The Welsh girl is saying it just like we would 'mehg-an' (mehg as egg) but with a little bit more emphasis on the 'an'.

    My friends in the midwest always say meg-gun, Meg rhyming with egg, and use Meg as a nickname in the the traditional pronunciation of it. On the west coast, you hear a lot of may-gun, and I've never heard of Meg pronounced as mayg used for a nickname. In French, it sounds sort of strange; the name doesn't really translate, so often sounds like mee-gahn or meh-gahn. In the Netherlands, g=ch, like a hard H, so it sounds like mee-chahn or meh-chahn. In Britain I've only heard it as mee-gun.

    In Michigan, it'd be pronounced MEGG-in, Meg rhyming with beg.
