How do you pronounce the name, "Megan"?

DH swears it's mee-gann.
Mee, like the word "me" + gann like the name "Ann", but with a "g" in front of it.

I think it's generally pronounced as meg-ann.
Meg, like Meg Ryan + Ann like the name "Ann".

This is super important. We're tossing baby names around. I like Megan but DH thinks it's pronounced differently when it's spelled that way. He likes it too, but he wants to spell it, "Meghan". I really don't like that "h" in there at all! It's make or break for me, seriously!

Yes, it's "May-gan" out of my mouth and my hubby's too.

Me (like "hay") gen (like "hen")

...but in all honesty, I pronounce it the way the person who is named that wants me to. There are so many different ways to pronounce it, but if I were to name MY child that, this is how I would pronounce it.

Re: How do you pronounce the name, "Megan"?

My name is spelled that way I think less than twice can I ever remember someone pronouncing it like that. Most of the time it was either May-gan (which I prefered) or Meh-gan and more often than not you couldn't for sure decipher the difference between the two. The vast majority of people will not think that is Meegan, I promise!
