Some parents want something a little different in terms of a first name for their child. Keegan is unusual without being strange or over the top. Keegan is derived from the Irish surname MacAodhagáin. It has the same spirited appeal as other Irish last names converted to firsts, like Finnegan and Teagan. Comic actor Keegan-Michael Key pretty much has the name to himself in Hollywood.
