Meaning of the baby name MORGANA.

  

MORGANA.  Arthurian.  An Italian form of French Morgán (q.v.), from Celtic Morrigan (q.v.), meaning "great queen."
    Morgana King, an American actress and singer.  Morgana Roginson, an English actress, comedienne, and writer. (Wiki)

Morgana, Fata (It. the fay or fairy Morgana), the name under which Morgan le Fay passed into the Italian Carlovingian romances.  In Aristo's Orlando Furioso she convinces Arthur of the infidelity of his queen by means of a magic horn.
    In Bojardo's Orlando Innamorato (1495) she appears as the personification of Fortune, living at the bottom of a lake and dispensing the treasures of the earth, subject only to the all-potent Demogorgon.  In other romances she lives in the island of Avalon and transports thither Ogier the Dane, whom she rejuvenates.  In French she is called Morgán,
Morgaine, or Morgue la Fée.  The name Fata Morgana is to-day given to a curious atmospheric phenomenon akin to a mirage which is often witnessed in the straits of Messina and is attributed to her magic powers. (Heroes and Heroines of Fiction, Walsh, 1914)
