What do you think? Just Maggie, or are there other options I'm missing?

Mo? Marge?

Aren't Margot's called Mogie or is that Morag?

Just "M" like James Bond?

Assuming Margot is a derivative of Margaret, the traditional nickname would be Daisy. (Several reasons...French / English...) Pretty!

Margie. Isn't Margot a shortened form of Margaret?

Margot is a nickname in itself

gertiegusset Wed 26-Mar-14 13:20:04

I thought the traditional nickname for Margaret was Peggy.

As Margot is one of the NNs for Margaret, I think you could use any associated with that name: Maggie, Mags, Meg, Peggy, Peg, Pegotty, Daisy, Pearl, Madge. It can even extend to May and Maisie.

Gawd save us, not Madge! shock

squoosh Wed 26-Mar-14 13:27:46

Madge is grim.

I don't think Margot needs a nn really, as fairly short anyway. However a friends child who's 8 is called Margot and is called Coco at home a lot

Thanks, all. Yep been struggling with the Margot/Margaret thing. I'm normally big on putting proper names not nicknames officially but not too keen on Margaret at all, and trying to decide if Margot is proper "enough", even though it is technically a nickname. Hmmm.

Lot's of lovely options, though, thanks smile

squoosh Wed 26-Mar-14 13:36:18

It's plenty proper enough even though it originated as a nickname.

Augustwedding Wed 26-Mar-14 13:43:11

It's lovely on its own right.

Ah OP! I have a 2 week old snugly newborn called Margot - official nickname Maggie but increasingly called Magpie as the days wear on. Love love love the name Margot and we have had a LOT of compliments about it already!

P.s.. If we hadn't gone with the nickname of Maggie (which actually was what led us to Margot) I would definitely use Peggy. It's gorgeous!

Magpie! Never would of thought of that, that's so cute!

JustDanni Wed 26-Mar-14 18:57:08

maggie?

guineapig2014 Wed 26-Mar-14 19:00:44

Maggie, Mary, Margie, mag, mog, gogo

ZforZachariah Wed 26-Mar-14 19:17:03

Our Margot was Gogo for a bit. Now she's just Margot and rarely Maggie.

JuanFernandezTitTyrant Wed 26-Mar-14 19:19:46

Our friends with a Margot call her Maggot. HTH grin
