My middle name! Spelled incorrectly most of the time, but then again so is my first and last name!

I feel like this is going to get popular in the UK again if Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle.

I like this name. Partly because it's my name, but also because it's such a cute spelling of it. Yes, i have to correct people, or tell them how to spell it, a lot. Truth is I used to not like my name because I had to repeat myself so many times on how to spell it. But as I got older, I just stopped caring if it was spelled wrong. One time my friend forgot if the 'h' before or after the 'g' so she spelled it "Mehgan". I laughed so hard. :D

I actually prefer this spelling to Megan although the h is not intutive
