Meghan is an Irish-inspired spelling of the Welsh girl’s name Megan, meaning “pearl,” and stemming from the Greek margarī́tēs. Since pearls are both rare and precious, this is a particularly flattering name for baby. A fashionable choice throughout Wales, the UK, Ireland, Sweden, and Denmark, Meghan has numerous variants and diminutives, including Meagan, Megyn, and Meg. The spelling with the “h” is perhaps most associated with Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex and wife of Prince Harry.
