1) I don't love the name the way I'd like to before putting it in writing. This is my only daughter, I'd really like a super feminine, super strong name. What do you all think when you hear the name Morgan? What tone does it have?
2) We've chosen Claire as the middle name. I don't love this name either, but we agreed to do family names as middle names (both boys middle names are after their grandfathers, so we wanted our daughter to have a grandmothers name). I do like that Claire means "beautiful" though.
3) So how does Morgan Claire sound?
We both LOVE LOVE LOVE the name Rogue, but when I realized it had a negative meaning, we just couldn't bring ourselves to name our precious daughter after a scoundrel/theif, LOL! I also love the name Sloan, but it sounds way too masculine. So Morgan Claire is what we've chosen right now, and no other names have really popped up for either one of us.
BTW, her brothers are Ethan and Alexander (Alex), and we have a 2 syllable last name that's easy to pronounce.
Morgan La Fey was a misunderstood woman of power that pitted herself against King Arthur.
Claire is so incredibly popular right now. I'm glad you are considering it for a middle name only.
Midwife. Mama to five. Love is still the greatest.
Lovin' my four-pack: M, S, a different M, and me.
Morgan Claire is really beautiful. Good choice!
Morgan Claire is a lovely name! Sloane (with an "e") though has always been a feminine name for me. Must be the result of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
I also think the name combo is lovely.

Morgan is a name that ages well. There are some names that I can't take seriously once the person is over 25.
FWIW, we are considering naming our child "Morgan" if it is a boy, but I am sort of thinking it is too feminine. Clare is my middle name, so I am partial I love this name - makes me want to name MY girl Morgan Clare
(I am partial to the spelling with no 'i' because that's how my middle name is spelled.)
Of course makes me think of The Mists of Avalon and all the legends...
Clare sounds nice and distinctive with it!
I am glad you passed on Rogue. Makes me think of Sarah Palin "going rogue"

Love Sloane! Looks more feminine with the e than without.
Love Rogue as well! Very unique, very strong, not as feminine, but very original.
Just my 2cents. Names are tricky, sometimes it helps to wait until they arrive and see "what they look like". Wishing you good luck!
