Just love Maggie as it is, sorry that is not much help hmm

Sorry, whenever I see Maggie as a name, something in my mind just choruses 'Out Out Out!' grin

Maggie isn't as nice as any of the longer names it can come from, IMO.

Maggie is lovely can see why you want to use it. I havent come across any under fives with this name.

My friend called her daughter Maggie.

Her DH called daughter Maggie all the way through pregnancy, and then they then ended up calling her Maggie.

I like it. Think it stands up as a name on its own.

I love Marguerite.

Thank you so much for your responses, the name margot is beautiful as a full name but maybe it would be just fine on it's own after all!! I'm glad (most!) of you like it :-)

I like Maggie a lot but I do like Margaret too.

I have a Maggie too! Know of 1 other but hers is shortened from Margaret.

We decided it was lovely just as a name in itself and I'm really pleased we gave it to her, I love it.

I know a bunch of them DD1's age and younger. All are short for Margaret but one is Margret on her BC.

I have a Maggie too, and have never met another!
Mine isn't short for anything.
SHe really suits her name.

I like Maggie in its own right too. One we toyed with.

Fourleaf Thu 16-Dec-10 18:40:59

I love Maggie But would personally call her Margaret on the birth certificate...

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Thu 16-Dec-10 22:21:20

My 2 best friends are called Maggie, not short for anything, just Maggie

It's a lush name

SilkStalkings Sat 18-Dec-10 18:00:29

I was going to have a Maggie short for Marianne. Was a boy in the end.

JojoMags Sat 18-Dec-10 19:20:22

I once knew a Morag who got Maggie as a nn. I prefer Maggie on its own though.
