Love this name pronounced Tee-gan. So cool.

Taegan Says:


My name is Taegan pronounced "tay-gan," but I often get called Teagan. Having said that, I love my name, and Taegan would be a good alternative if you do not like the "tee-gan" pronunciation. I constantly get comments on how beautiful and unique my name is!

pam Says:


Thanks for pointing this out. If the punctuation is slightly off and there are two origins and meanings, as with Teagan and Tegan, they get mixed up in terms of what's visible on the page. I have now corrected.

pindorama Says:


So true.

Auntie_A Says:


How can it mean "little poet" as a boys name & "beautiful" as a girls name? It's exactly the same name, spelled the same way.

There's a women in my churches choir who named her daughter Teagan (Tee-gun). I really like the name. I first heard it on Tegan and Sara, but she spelled it different.

beachbear Says:


I think Tegan is okay, but the spelling Teagan makes me think of tea bags.

So do I!

Zelliew Says:


I like Teagan & feel it should be pronounced " Tee gan " as it ends in GAN. It is only a girl's name in my mind.

iamanameaddict Says:


My name is Teegan and nobody understands me when I introduce my self. I also don't like that I don't have a nickname.

PoppyOrangey Says:


I went to school with a girl named Teagan, pronounced TEE-gun. I always remembered her, because of her unique name, but I did find it a little odd amongst all the Sarahs, Samanthas, and Kaitlins. I have a very common name, but I never really favored the name Teagan and I was glad it wasn't my name. It just seems a little bit too different...

headintheclouds Says:


This is one of the fewer surname names I actually like- I'm drawn to the Tee- sound. I like Teagan for a girl and not a boy though + only the Teagan spelling, and I think pairing it with a longer and frillier name would be perfect- something like Teagan Sophia or Teagan Juliette would be lovely IMO!

Rush1986 Says:


i just dont like this name. I guess i am just over anything sounding like megan since i grew up with a million megan's, meghann's, meaghan's ugh

Alicia1 Says:


I like this name, I have not heard it before. I have heard of Keagan for a boy.

Guest Says:


I would prefer to pronounce it "tee gan".

kendallrhea1 Says:


My sister is Teagan and she doesn't have problems with being called "tay-gan" indiefendi

Guest Says:


I really like this name but I'd get mad if people kept saying "tay-gan"

edit: well that's technically the right way to say it I hear so I can't really get mad at that but I much prefer tee-gan.
