I think Morgaine or Morgana are cute (don't care for Morgan) but they're both a little too stereotypical to me. You know, all the little witchlings named Morgaine, I don't know, maybe it's just me.[/b]
haha, I know what you mean! Morgaine and Morrighan are common among Pagan families. I have a friend who's daughter's name is Cerridwen Morrigan and then another friend who has a daughter named Morrighan. Both are Pagan families. As are we.
I teach British Literature, so I spend a lot of time with Morgan la Fay, and while I love the name, it's hard for me to get beyond the fact that in most versions of the Arthurian legend, she sleeps with her brother and spends most of her life being manipulative and mean. Still, I like the name. (Oh, and in the traditional Arthurian legend, Fay means "fate".)[/b]
Have you ever read Mists of Avalon? Shows Morgaine in a MUCH different light.
I like the Mists of Avalon perspective on Morgan la Fay, but it's more of a fringe reading of her character, compared to all the other versions (Except I Am Morgan La Fay by Nancy Springer, which, while it still shows her as manipulative, gives a sense of perspective as to why.) As a name though, I like it. I always made the association of Morgan horses with the name Morgan, but as a horse person, that doesn't bother me at all.
