Tegan: unisex baby name meaning and popularity

Tegan

Tegan has two possible etymologies: one, from the Welsh word "teg" (meaning "fair and beautiful," + the diminutive "an" suffix meaning "little"). The second, from the Gaelic word "tadhg," meaning "storyteller" (again, plus the "little" suffix - so, "little storyteller"). But no matter which meaning you go with, Tegan is sure to tell you a few whoppers, so the storyteller meaning may be the most accurate. At least during childhood.
