All lovely! I've just had an Alice. Did think about Margaret/ Maggie. Thatcher put me off in the end though.

My other children are called Lucy Jude and Katy so also which name goes better

I think Maggie is a beautiful name and very cool. Go for the name you love. People will associate it with your daughter so quickly and if they say anything negative they are rude.

I think they all go with your other DC's names except for Leni.

Maggie is great.

Or what about Peggy?

I love Maggie smile

Quite like Peggy also Danny is nice I do like a unisex name which is why I thought of Leni . Will likely have Maggie as you all seem to like it smile

I like Alice Dawn.
Maggie is nice too.😀

Maggie is nice. Don't let a horrible woman spoil a perfectly good name!

hayser33 Wed 14-Jun-17 19:34:28

I hadent even thought if Thatcher i must admit lol confused

Emmy is my favourite but I think Alice goes best with your other DCs names smile

I have a Maggie and no-one has been negative. I secretly love that if her name is called, for example in a doctor's surgery, people expect to see a 70 year old! Her only quibble is that people assume she is called Maddie because that is more common for a teenager

Lenin makes me think of goose-stepping Hitler Youth singing the Horst-Wessel Lied, unfortunately, grin but interestingly, Maggie doesn't have Thatcher connotations for me -- I really like it.

Alice Dawn is lovely.

VinIsGroot Wed 14-Jun-17 19:47:13

Emily is preferable

MiniAlphaBravo Wed 14-Jun-17 19:47:20

I think Alice Dawn is really beautiful and goes well with your other lovely names. I do think thatcher sadly when I hear Maggie 😔

I also had Agnes on my list then you could have Aggie if you liked that. I still prefer Alice

hayser33 Wed 14-Jun-17 19:52:07

Hard to decide Alice Dawn is nice isint it i just thought Maggie is different

Sophronia Wed 14-Jun-17 19:57:38

Maggie Dawn.

AfunaMbatata Wed 14-Jun-17 19:59:08

Maggie reminds me of maggots too much, the other names are lovely though.

Mulch Wed 14-Jun-17 20:00:42

Maggie as a nickname for Margaret or magdelena? Just seems abit lacking for a first name

hayser33 Wed 14-Jun-17 20:04:49

Just Maggie as not overly keen on Margaret and we would never call her that and Magdalena is too long as other children names are only 4 letters so didn't wany anything too long

QuietNinjaTardis Wed 14-Jun-17 20:08:03

I like Maggie as a stand alone name and Maggie Dawn sounds really nice, but unusual in the combo. Go for it.

SirNiallDementia Wed 14-Jun-17 20:17:24

I like all the names on your list but Maggie is my favourite!
