Megan, Caitlin, and Erin are three of the names from when I was growing up that I'd happily still use. It's probably not coincidence that all three end in that rounded -n sound, and two are softened versions of Ultra-Classics (And fwiw, I prefer Megan to Margaret, though Margaret is undeniably evergreen classic).
Megan is just very simple and sweet without being ruffled.
Meghan looks messy and contrived to me though, sorry. I don't care for it or Maegan or any of those, they all look wrong to me. I can't do Caitlin with a K or y in it either, you might say I am stuck in my ways.

I think if you really want to honour your heritage then you'd also respect it by using the original spelling. Megan's all right. It's dated now and NMS but I can stand it (and Meg is a great nn.) I really dislike Meghan though. The 'h' serves no purpose other than making the person who chose it look a bit ignorant, to be brutally honest. I'm fairly sure that 'gh' makes a different sound to 'g' in Welsh (it certainly does in Cornish, its sister language), so it wouldn't even be pronounced the same in the mother country. Stick with the original- it's fine as it is!

I can almost hear what you're trying to describe if I think of it in a Welsh accent. More like 'mEH-gan' with a longer more emphasised 'eh' but 'meh-GAN' to me reads like the pronunciation from the Renault car adverts for their Megane in which they say 'meh-GANNE'.
But then, even here:
She seems to be putting the same amount of emphasis on both syllables, so... I'm not sure.~Boys~
