It's a bit very out of fashion but for some reason I'm drawn to it for dd due in June!

Love NNs Peggy or Maggie.

Am I just being completely bonkers?

Dd1 is Lily
DS is sachin (Indian name- DP is Indian)

I'm not sure. It's okay; there are definitely 'worse' names from the past, although Peggy really doesn't have a nice sound to it. It doesn't really go with your others, though.

I like Margaret. Simple and classic.

Peggy is fantastic, due a revival.

Margaret is great because you could also have from it Daisy, Molly, Meg, Maggie, Margie.

Lovely name. Dd1 middle name after my mum. Peggy Maggie Meg even daisy as nicknames. Fits the criterion to be anyone you want - sweet little daisy , magz the hip cool dude through the prime minister !

I like it, and yes, lots and lots of nn options smile

TheWrathofNaan Sun 27-Mar-16 17:06:03

Love the name!

I think it's great, good nn potential. I don't love Peggy, but like Maggie, Maisie, Daisy, Meg.

I think you are too soon, the 100 year rule means it'll be popular again in probably 2050 ish.
I love Audrey though

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 27-Mar-16 17:14:00

The Op would beat the popularity rush then Clarice. Well known but uncommon name. Perfect.

Sophronia Sun 27-Mar-16 17:30:09

I like it with nn Peggy

MrsMoggy Sun 27-Mar-16 17:32:46

My great nan was Margaret aka Peggy. Her daughter my nan is also Margaret but no nicknames. I know a few two and under girls called Peggy

HainaultViaNewburyPark Sun 27-Mar-16 17:36:29

I really like Margaret.

lovelilies Sun 27-Mar-16 18:46:03

Excellent! Now to suggest it to DP..confused

seven201 Sun 27-Mar-16 18:53:30

My granny was a Peggy, lovely lady smile

My Margaret is 7 and fabulous. Mostly gets Daisy but also Meg and goes through phases of wanting to be Margaret.

ashesandfire Sun 27-Mar-16 19:10:28

It's my middle name, after my gran and I hated it growing up. Now I think it's ok but I don't like any of the nicknames. I think Margot is far nicer and softer tbh.

MadisonAvenue Sun 27-Mar-16 19:14:37

It's my mother in law's name...enough said hmm

loubielou2 Sun 27-Mar-16 19:18:26

There are some variations to consider. How about Marguerite, Marguerita or Margo?

Thurlow Sun 27-Mar-16 20:01:32

Fantastic name - am currently expecting DC2 and if it's a girl, it will be Margaret/Maggie

SleepyRoo Sun 27-Mar-16 20:05:43

Thatcher

candykane25 Sun 27-Mar-16 20:08:25

Margaret is definitely on the tip of a comeback. I know a Margo. It's happening. Ditto Kathleen.

Babylove2015 Sun 27-Mar-16 20:52:34

Nothing wrong with Margaret. There are baby Mabels out there - now that's really old fashioned! ( I like Mabel btw). Maggie and Daisy are cute nicknames.

PunkAssMoFo Sun 27-Mar-16 21:01:47

Margaret means 'pearl' - the birthstone for June.

Not keen on Peggy though.
