Sometimes turning a surname into a first name works, and sometimes it doesn’t. In the case of Teagan, it works well for both boys and girls. With Irish origins, Teagan is the anglicized form of the Gaelic Ó Tadhgáin, which means “descendant of Tadhgán.” The first name Tadhgán is a form of “tadhg,” meaning “poet,” “attractive,” and “philosopher.” It has been a popular girls' name since debuting at the turn of the century, and it made the boys' chart just a few years later.
