  • neither spelling personally. All I can think of is the poor kid trying to learn to spell their own name and being totally confused as to why there are the extra letters

  • I actually like both, but hate the way you spelled them. They will forever be correcting peoples spelling and will always get things with their name misspelled on it.

    And think of the poor little guy in Kindergarten trying desperately to write his name!!!

  • Think of it this way--if we are having a hard time figuring out how to pronounce the names, imagine your kid, the other kids, the teachers, the pediatrician....you get the idea. They may be nice names, but give the kid a break.

  • The names are ok. I prefer the second. I agree with the others don't care for the spelling either.

  • Teacher speaking here. If you give your child either of these names, please teach them to be patient with people trying to pronouce it from the spelling. I get really frustrated when I get attitude from a student when I either ask them "how do you pronounce your name" or I attempt it myself and make a mistake. I personally like the first one if you are going with teh "Key-gun" pronounciation.

  • I like both names, but can't stand those spellings. Like Layh41407, I'm a teacher too and it really affects the way your child is treated in the education field when you give them names that have unusual spellings. I would choose Keiton because it sounds more masculine. Keagan is starting to be used for a girl's name and putting the "y" in it makes it super feminine.

  • I like Keiton but also dislike the funky spelling. The other is too much like Calgon...take me away.

  • Until I got a few posts into this I had no idea how to even pronounce either name. Honestly I don't like either, and if you do choose one, then like someone else said - teach them patience when having to correct people's pronunciation and spelling of his name, because it will be misspelled and mispronounced.
