    I've never heard it that way here in my life.

    I say Megan like megg-in, as does every one else I know. I do have a friend that speaks Welsh as a first language though, and I imagine that she would say it with the emphasis on the first syllable when speaking in English and on the second when speaking in Welsh, as she does this with other names.

    That's a better way of putting it 'meh-GAN' and 'MEHG-an'.

    I usually say MEG-gen, but I like the sound of MAY-gen. However, I like Meg better with the short e.

    I always pronounce every spelling as meg-un, though my relatives in the Pacific Northwest say it a little more like may-gun (then again they say bag like bayg, soooo... Hehe). I know someone from work who is named maygan, in order to get the may pronunciation, but pretty much everyone slips and calls her meg-un (pet peeve of hers!)

    Hello
    My name is actually Megan and we pronounce it 'May-gen', and I live in the Netherlands. Although my English teacher (who is originally from the USA) and my French teacher constantly call me 'Meh-gen'. That's it I guess,
    Bye
