I love both of these names, which do you prefer? Thank you. smile

Mary. Beautiful.

I know Margot is having a surge, but I don't like it. I hate the hard 'g' sound in the middle, and it reminds me of maggot. sad

I prefer Margot. Love it. We have one. I like Mary a lot too though.

Mary is so much prettier and feminine.

I dislike Margot esp pronounced Mar-gott.

I like both, but Mary is the nicer of the too. I think Margot might be a bit of a current fad which is a shame as it's a nice name.

❤️ Mary.

Both, but Margot is slightly nicer

They're both nice. But I think I prefer Margot.

I have a Margot. Everyone comments on how unusual it is. Maybe consider the alternative spelling margaux if you want to be diff. I like it but my brother told me I was being precocious!

Margot reminds me of escargot and maggot.

Mary is beautiful.

I love Mary.

Can't stand Margot. Echo the thoughts of PPs re maggot.

Is margot pronounced mar-got? Or Margo?
It always reminds me of a hyacinth buckett type character from the Victorian age.

Mary is timeless isn't it.

As far as I'm aware the G is silent, so Margo. I could be wrong though.

Mary is beautiful, have always loved the name, so classic and timeless. Not keen on Margot I'm afraid.

For me Mary has too many religious overtones. It’s my middle name and the middle name of every girl I grew up with too. But if you didn’t attend a convent school for 14 years you probably don’t have the same associations! grin

I prefer Margot. It has a cool 1940s vibe. And it’s not frilly, always a plus.

Hellofromme Fri 07-Apr-17 18:53:42

Don't like either but Mary is worst.

Margot of course. She is witty, stylish and cosmopolitan.

Mary is a bit lumpen.
