Hi -
Cheating here slightly as I don't have a baby to name! Humour me!
I'm writing a piece of fiction in which the protagonist is named Margaret, shortened to Mae. I'd like to include a middle name, but can't decide on what. I like Mae Violet, but not Margaret Violet, and in the context of the fic, where her full name will be used, the 'et' end sounds grate on me! Even though I'm only naming a fictional character, I'd like the name to flow.

Sorry - probably a bit over invested in this fic confusedblush

Thatcher. That's got a nice ring to it.

Mary.... I've been thinking of two middle names being Margaret Mary.... slightly biased as they are my grandmother's middle names.

Vote for Rose

Margaret Rose does work but isn't it what Princess Margaret was known as? Depends whether the royal connotations would be problematic

I love Margaret (not Thatcher, obvs.). Love Maggie and Peggy and Meg as NN too.

Margaret Grace

Margaret Ruth - her parents liked old school names but she's cool and hates them hence she uses mae!

Not Maggie May. Please don't.
