Margot. What does everyone think?

Horrible name, hugely in vogue with various Sloanes of my acquaintance right now.

EchoBitch Thu 07-Mar-13 21:39:13

Morag's get called Mogie.

Almost as bad as Senga.

Love it. Was on my shortlist.

I think Margot may think her sister has the better name. Not to my taste. But lovely couple. Congrats to them.

Love it, I've just read Gone Girl which has a character called Go, was quite far into the book when I discovered her full name was Margot, it had been really bugging me (thicko emoticon).

Isn't it short for Margaret?

Suprisingly, it's lovely. I always expect celebrities to call their children stupid names but Margot is gorgeous. And I love Lyra too.

ooooh, nice! Lyra & Margot sounds great. :-)

LynetteScavo Fri 08-Mar-13 22:51:29

I like Margot better than Lyra.

Weirdly I would spell Margot Margo, because it's more like Mango than Magot. Told you it was weird.

Hideous. Trying too hard.

Oh I really don't like it. I don't think Margot is a nice sounding name at all. It's almost as bad as Ethel.

OkayHazel Fri 08-Mar-13 23:45:31

Love it! And I like Morag too :D

NorthernLurker Fri 08-Mar-13 23:47:41

It's a lovely name.

anonymosity Fri 08-Mar-13 23:47:47

Lovely. And not overly-over done.

MummyPig24 Sat 09-Mar-13 20:44:09

Love Lyra, hate Margot!

Margot pronounced the French way (mar-go) or the German way (mar-got)? Not sure I like either that much.

Yy the Good Life. Also when I hear it in my head it's said with Lloyd Grosman's accent...

SanityClause Sun 10-Mar-13 22:00:39

I have a good friend called Margot. It's a lovely name.

jkklpu Sun 10-Mar-13 22:39:07

I like it but prefer Margaux spelling

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Sun 10-Mar-13 23:06:30

Surely Margaux is a plural? Like gateaux?

WinkyWankyWonkyPeppa Sun 10-Mar-13 23:15:43

I agree with LouisianaBlue Simples grin

LOVE it & would use it myself but you would be hard pushed to find a name that sounds worse with our surname which starts with an M and is pretty close to Mason!

Sasparillo Tue 12-Mar-13 23:35:19

No, I really dislike the name Margot! Lyra isnt much better, but I agree with pp, at Least it's not Apple or Satsuma! Lol, each to their own, I'm sure she will grow up to suit her name perfectly x

I am amazed at how many hideous names are popular on mumsnet.
