There are actresses Megan Fox and Megan Mullally and the daughters of TV chef Gordon Ramsay and Alison Sweeney of “The Biggest Loser.” The name is an offshoot of the Welsh Meg, which comes from Margaret, which comes from the Hebrew word for “pearl.” While it’s still in use, it’s not superpopular, which is good news for parents who don’t want to follow the crowd.
