There's something special about finding a name that points to cultural roots and heritage. The Gaelic name Madigan has its origins in the western part of Ireland, from where many Madigans emigrated to the United States and Canada in the 19th century. It is best known as a traditional Irish surname in the US, but as a gender-neutral forename, it suddenly sounds fresh and unique. Keen to get your paws on this given name?
