Is this name more of a boys name or girls name to you? It has to be spelled KEGAN and not KEEGAN or any other form. I have a 5 letter ending in an N rule :lol .

Thanks

Well, its 100% a boys name. Even on a girl, its a boys name. I don't like the spelling though. I would pronounce it KEG-en, not KEY-gen.

It's totally a boy's name. But, like the previous poster, I would pronounce it rhyming with Megan.

I immediately pronounced it like KEE-gan when I saw it so I think the spelling works. I know a Keegan and a Keagan, both boys, so I see it as a boys name, but I think it's like many others: Jordan, Carsyn, Rilee, Mackenzie, to name a few, that start out as boys names but can be carried by a girl. I like it and I think it fits with your boys' names either way

Boy's name for me. I would pronounce it as KEY-gen but I can see how some might want to say KEG-en. Not a big deal though.

my cousin's daughter's name is Kegen pronounced Key-gen. Her name is Kegan Elizabeth and I think it is a gorgeous name
