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. It’s Irish and the anglicized form of the Gaelic Ó Tadhgáin, which means “descendant of Tadhgán.” The first name Tadhgán is a form of “tadhg,” meaning “poet.” 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.
