Keegan for a Girl


What is everyone's thoughts on the name Keegan for a girl? I want different and unique but not weird. (I'm part irish so I think it could fit).

I personally wouldn't do it but I think it sounds fine. There have been worse boy names used for girls.

I don't like that spelling. Keegan looks nicer!

Keegan is nice! Keigan or Kiegan might be slightly more girly alternatives but I think the original spelling is just fine!

My husband and I are both part Irish and we have a very Irish last name so we are also looking for Irish names. We found a boy name right away but haven't narrowed down any girls names yet.

I think it sounds ok, although I do see it more as a boys name . I think the spelling Keigan or Kiegan makes it look more feminine though

I was thinking about the name Erin/Aaron. I think different spelling can make a huge difference. But even without, tons of names work both ways even with the same spelling - Jordan, Robin, Alex, to name a few.

So if you love it, I think you should go for it. You will probably redefine the name for some people. Its not like you're naming her Charles, Fred or Bob (traditional male names) Keegan is relatively new and still has room for growth in reputation.

Not a fan of the spelling with the 'y'. I think the original spelling is fine, or you could add an i - Kiegan perhaps.
