All About Mary

Morgan, Name Origins

Q: Is Morgan a derivation of Mary?

A: The name Morgan doesn't have any Marian connection. It is originally Welsh and is variously translated as "seadweller," "by the sea," and "seaman." Moil or mor refer to sea, while gan has the meaning of "bringing forth."

All About Mary includes a variety of content, much of which reflects the expertise, interpretations and opinions of the individual authors and not necessarily of the Marian Library or the University of Dayton. Please share feedback or suggestions with marianlibrary@udayton.edu.
