Origin: Welsh, Irish
Meaning: from Old Welsh name Morcant derived from Welsh mor “sea” and cant “circle” or can “white, bright” meaning “sea circle” or “sea white/bright”.
It’s also a modern form of Morgen most likely based on Irish Muirgen meaning “born of the sea”.
I’ve also seen it listed as “great hundred” from Welsh mawr “great” and cant “hundred”.
In Arthurian Romance, Morgan le Fay is a powerful sorceress, sometimes depicted as the half-sister of Arthur and his most dangerous enemy.
Variants: Morgane, Morgaine, Morgana, Morgen (all feminine); Morcant (male)
