The way it's spelled, obviously.

Though I also now pronounce your full name so that it rhymes with "Reagan". So make of that as you will.

Same, which always made me question if I should be pronouncing it "teeg".

I usually pronounce it like it "tee-gh" but sometime I stumble and pronounce it "Jiff".

I kinda switch in between the first two options, but probably rhymes with Peg is how I read it most often.

I've always pronounced it in my head like "Tej" (i.e. "tedge"), probably because I had a friend in college named Tej.

I've always thought it as like rhyming with "peg", but realize now that because it's shorthand for your full name it should be "teeg", so now I have a moral conundrum

I should make another poll to find out how many people didn't realize my name was Tegan.

I am part of the elite realname username club.

In my head I pronounce teg as "Jess"

and the full tegan as "Jessica"

I hope that's okay.

"Get a teg" is a palindrome that makes sense, and is good advice.

"Get a teeg" is not a palindrome at all.

"Geet a teeg" doesn't make sense.

Clearly there's only one answer.

Te-gu, because that's how it's spelled in the Japanese version.

Yes but there's a very limited supply (unfortunately).

That works. Shows what a carnivore I am that I couldn't even think of the word.
