We love this name - and plan on 'presenting' the name with Maggie as a nickname. But any ideas for middle name? Our firstborn has Violet so we had previously thought of Rose for this baby but I'm not sure it flows well with Margot.

Margot May?
Margot Mary?

Margot Rose is gorgeous!

Geckos48 Sun 05-Jan-14 12:42:48

Ann

TheFantasticFixit Sun 05-Jan-14 12:44:51

Oo good to know my hormonal instincts are wildly off. Our surname is like that of a well known, bagless cyclonic vacuum cleaner wink.. Reckon it could still work?

TheFantasticFixit Sun 05-Jan-14 12:45:42

Gecko my mum just suggested Ann. I'm not totally sold, but what about Margot Annie?

Geckos48 Sun 05-Jan-14 12:54:08

Not such a fan of Annie for a middle name.

Staying on flowers Margot Daisy, Margot Primrose or Margot Dahlia?

Margot is fab. I like Margot Mary.

I love Annie (I have one!) but I think Margot Annie might not work as the names sort of run into each other iyswim.

TheFantasticFixit Sun 05-Jan-14 15:21:25

Hmm. Yes I do know what you mean.. Margot Mary is high on my list - as is Margot Rose. I think because of the hard 'g' i keep thinking it needs something more 'girly' as a middle?

Margot and daisy are both derived from Margaret if that bothers you/ floats your boat.

rueyrichardson Sun 05-Jan-14 16:28:54

Margaret (Margot) Mary is very high on our list too!

Rosencrantz Sun 05-Jan-14 21:01:18

Margot Ivy?
Margot primrose?

cheminotte Sun 05-Jan-14 21:04:55

Iris?

TheFantasticFixit Sun 05-Jan-14 22:42:08

I like Margot Ivy, and Margot Iris! Both very pretty suggestions!

DollarDollarBills Sun 05-Jan-14 22:56:21

Margot Violet?

Queeniethecorgi Sun 05-Jan-14 23:11:35

Margot iris I love

tethersend Sun 05-Jan-14 23:14:33

I like Margot too.

If you're planning n Maggie as a NN, avoid May as a middle name unless you are a huge Rod Stewart fan grin

Margot Pearl?

Footle Sun 05-Jan-14 23:15:18

Rose is good. She wouldnt thank you for the initials MAD.

spicegirl13 Sun 05-Jan-14 23:21:21

We have a Maggie Ann smile

I like Rose best with your surname

TheFantasticFixit Sun 05-Jan-14 23:22:01

Ah! Yes Tethers, good point!

I actually LOVE Margot Violet but I can't give both girls the same middle name. I'm swaying back to Margot Rose as well.

Argh, so many choices for my poor pea sized baby brain!

TheFantasticFixit Sun 05-Jan-14 23:22:26

Footle - no! Indeed, probably not

ancientbuchanan Sun 05-Jan-14 23:30:59

Margot Grace
Margot Demelza
Margot Camilla
Margot Tabitha
Margot Rosemary/ Rose-Marie
Margot Lavender
Margot Beatrice
Margot Danielle
Margot Fenella
Margot Griselda
Margot Jasmine
Margot Lily

Suggestions, floral and otherwise, above.

I like Rose , but prefer Lily, or Lilias, or Lilian, ie more than one syllable.

LittleMissRedSparklyBaubles Sun 05-Jan-14 23:33:44

I like Margot Rose, but I also really like the name Mary - it was my gran's name and one of my sister's middle names - and am glad to see it seems to be having a bit of a comeback.

MargotIris Sun 05-Jan-14 23:36:25

Right I've been sitting on my hands for long enough.

Margot is a shocking choice. Far too many people have been using it.

Coupled with Iris is a step too far.....

They'll be everywhere soon.

We do get a lot of compliments on the combo to be fair :D.

Good luck - you have fab taste ;). I love Margot Rose.

Margot comes from pearl so maybe not that though.

TheFantasticFixit Mon 06-Jan-14 00:51:55

Ooooo! MargotIris! A real one! I love your name - Is it yours, or your DD etc?

TheFantasticFixit Mon 06-Jan-14 00:53:45

Ancient - thank you for your fab list. Actually when discussing the name earlier my DH felt that it needed o be more than one syllable as well - I really like Margot Tabitha from your list, it's gorgeous. I don't think DH likes Tabitha though but SURELY as I'm doing the 'work' I can reserve power of veto? wink

MsJupiterJones Mon 06-Jan-14 08:39:44

I like Margot Lily.

MargotIris Mon 06-Jan-14 08:41:46

It's dd smile.

It's random we gave her a flower name but these all work really well.

Laquila Mon 06-Jan-14 08:50:02

LOVE Margot Rose and Margot Iris. Off the flower theme I also like Margot Miriam and Margot Frances.

ancientbuchanan Mon 06-Jan-14 18:28:41

Love love Margot Tabitha, but also like Margots Iris and Lily, and indeed Rose.

SicknSpan Mon 06-Jan-14 22:13:00

I have a Margot Frances, she's 2 in 3 weeks and her name has never had anything but a positive reaction.

How about Margot Rosalind instead of Margot Rose?
