Do these names go together?

Do you think the names Margot or Cecelia go with Archer? Looking for little sister names!

I quite like archer and Margot

JaxingJump Thu 19-Jan-17 00:06:47

Perfectly well.

They don't go together for me. Margot and Cecilia both have older origins and are French/Latin. Archer is one of the modern occupation-surname used as a forename type names, with Anglo-Saxon roots. I don't dislike them, but they don't gel together with Archer, imo.

Having said that, I think Margot goes a bit better than Cecilia.

MarilynWhirlwindRocks Thu 19-Jan-17 03:44:56

Bit confused, and definitely being a bit dim:
do you mean Archer's your surname and you're asking if either Margot or Cecilia suit it (no middle name, or when she's only needing to use Margot Archer/ Cecilia Archer...i.e. at school).

Or that Archer would be her middle name?

I love Cecilia in any case (and NN "Cece" or "Cici", both pronounced CeeCee, sound cute).

If I'm honest, Archer as an actual girl's name doesn't appeal to me hugely...fine as a surname, though!

Marilyn... I think the big brother is archer.

Op I think they do go together, cecelia is beautiful!

MarilynWhirlwindRocks Thu 19-Jan-17 03:54:44

Oh God, really am being dim! (Blame sleep deprivation).

Just realised (I think) that you mean Archer's her older sibling (DS?), and little sister's to be either Margot or Cecilia? In which case, see above; I love Cecilia. Archer and Cecilia go nicely together, IMO.

X Post. Thanks for clarifying that, Lady...I got there in the end grin

SoTiredSoWorried Thu 19-Jan-17 04:07:13

I like Margot

MarilynWhirlwindRocks Thu 19-Jan-17 04:08:17


Last post, promise...

Cecelia with an e rather than i also gives the option of NN Celia, of course; out of curiosity, is that why you prefer it? I've not come across that spelling before.

Cami12 Thu 19-Jan-17 05:27:03

Marilyn yes Archer is the older brother - sorry not clear! If we go down the Cecelia route then we need to decide which spelling to use, I've seen both options and can't decide. I like CeCe and Celia from Cecelia, but I like Cecilia too. That's a whole other postsmile. I think we're veering toward Margot right now, but it changes every day.

KoalaDownUnder Thu 19-Jan-17 05:33:21

I prefer Cecelia (spelled like that, ideally) because I adore the nn Celia.

Not loving the '-go' part of Margot.

I think they both go perfectly well with Archer.

Grufallosfriend Thu 19-Jan-17 08:57:17

I also prefer Cecilia.

I don't like the non French Mar-gott pronunciation

Stonewash Thu 19-Jan-17 09:58:06

I think Cecilia goes best.

MiniMaxi Thu 19-Jan-17 10:11:05

I like Margot & Archer

Barefootcontessa84 Thu 19-Jan-17 11:01:50

I think they go together. Archer is not a modern name - my great-grandfather was Archer, born in 1886.

Barefootcontessa84 Thu 19-Jan-17 11:02:48

Also like Cecilia best out of the two- to me, Margot is a bit 'of the moment' - Cecilia is an underused classic and has a different sound altogether from Archer.

Izzyathome Fri 20-Jan-17 05:31:33

I really like Margot and Archer together. As pp said they're both quite vintage. We have also considered both of these girls names. I slightly prefer the spelling Cecelia over Cecilia. Either name would be great.

lovelearning Fri 20-Jan-17 05:52:24

Archer and Margot. Margaret on the birth certificate.

Thatsnotmybabyname Fri 20-Jan-17 07:01:18

Yes, both go beautifully.

Carnabyqueen Sat 21-Jan-17 09:58:28

Both seem a bit try hard.

Mclaren37 Sun 22-Jan-17 05:26:36

I love Archer. I think either names works well.

Joeybee Sun 22-Jan-17 23:21:58

I think Cecilia and Archer go better. But both names to me are brilliant, they have been on my list for a long time!

BroadcastHouse Thu 16-Feb-17 08:05:04

They sound like characters out of a 1930's American novel.. Fitzgerald or Hemingwaygrin. Particularly Margot and Archer!
