Name originEdit

Queen Morgan le Fay, alternatively known as Morgan le Faye, Morgen, Morgaine, Morgain, Morgana, Morganna, Morgant, Morgane, Morgne, Morge, Morgue, and other names, is a powerful enchantress in the Arthurian legend. Early works featuring Morgan do not elaborate her character beyond her role as a fay or sorceress. She became much more prominent in the later works in which she becomes an enemy of King Arthur and an antagonist of many stories. Her character may be partially derived from that of the Welsh goddess Modron ("mother").

The earliest spelling of the name is Morgen, which is likely derived from Old Welsh or Old Breton Morgen, meaning "Sea-born" (a cognate form in Old Irish is Muirgein, the name of a Christian, shape-shifting female saint who was associated with the sea). As her epithet "le Fay" (from the French la fée, "the fairy") and some traits indicates, the figure of Morgan appears to have been a remnant of a supernatural woman from Celtic mythology, and her main name could be connected to the myths of Morgens (or Morgans) which are Welsh and Breton water spirits. While later works make her specifically human, she retains her magical powers.
