  1. We chose the name Morgan because it was a neutral name and planned it for baby whether boy or girl. It most recent times, Morgan has become a more feminine name but actually makes for an extremely masculine name. I will say because of its neutrality, our son gets confused for a girl when registering for different events etc.

  2. His father gave the name

  3. Because its his daddy’s name

  4. It was my great-grandfather’s name (so hubby had to consider it lol); the meaning is sea warrior, and we went through Hurricane Michael when I was 6 1/2 weeks pregnant; and it isn’t a super common name – especially for boys. Took some negotiating, but we are both super happy with it now!

  5. My husband was watching a movie with Morgan Freeman in it, and he kind of liked it so he poised it yup me. The next morning I still liked it so we went with it.

    • Same here it was hard for me to pick a boys name and then I heard Morgan Freeman voice and that was that. My mom loved it also.
