8. Meg Griffin (Family Guy)
Meg may be the eldest child in the Griffin household, but this self-concious and at times insecure teenager is known for being a pushover, with her younger brothers Stewie and Chris blaming many of their mischievious antics on her.
7. Meg Masters (Supernatural)
This unnamed demon not only possesed a woman’s body, but also took her name. “Meg” wreaked havoc on the Winchester brothers during season 1 before being exiled to hell. The brown-haired demon returned in season 2 seeking revenge and subsequently appeared in the sixth, seventh, and eighth seasons, before being killed off.
6. Meg (Hercules)
Just because she won’t say she’s in love, doesn’t mean that this fiery, independent Meg didn’t fall for Hercules. While, on the surface, Meg seems like a model feminist ahead of her time, it quickly becomes clear that her cynicism and independence derive from heartbreak and fear rather than self-confidence.
5. Megalodon (The Meg)
This massive shark is estimated to have been nearly three times the size of a great white when it roamed the seas before going extinct approzimately 2.3 million years ago. It’s sure to be a worthy adversary for Jason Statham when they face off in The Meg, but with his track record, our money’s on the UK’s resident action star.
4. Meg March (Little Women)
The oldest sister in the March family, Meg March starts out as materialistic and money-hungry, old enough to remember a time when her family was more well-off. Like many girls in the 19th century, Meg has a desire to get married. However, in the end, the ambitious March sister outgrows her juvenile desires and decides to marry for love, commiting to a hard-working orphan named John.
3. Meg Murry (A Wrinkle in Time)
One of the most powerful Meg’s on the list, young Meg Murray overcomes her fears and travels through space and time to successfully rescue her father and subsequently, the universe from evil forces.
2. Meg Ryan
The reigning 90s rom-com queen dominated the decade with hits like You’ve Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle, Kate & Leopold, and the 1989 classic When Harry Met Sally (which just happens to be one of our number 1 spot’s favorite movies).
1. Meghan Markle
Even before becoming the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan (nicknamed “Meg”) was a powerful, self-made woman. From starring on the hit legal drama Suits (in which she played a paralegal turned lawyer), to having her own line of clothing, to being an advocate for UN Women, Markle was the embodiment of female strength and ingenuity long before meeting her husband. Her wedding to Prince Harry was a feminist statement as well as a symbol of societal change.
