I don't know if this is a girl or boy but have a boy name.

Girl could be Meg, Rose, May or Ros/ Roselyn

Meg doesn't flow with our middle names. Can you suggest longer options with Meg as a given name please? (I love Megan, DH doesn't).

I may be wrong, but I think Meg's a nickname for Margaret? Not sure what else you could have.. maybe Maggie or Imogen?

Think Meg can be short for Margaret? Margery? Madeleine? Marnie? (Maybe a bit of a push)

NapQueen Wed 23-Aug-17 22:38:46

Just have Meg. When is anyone ever referred to as their first and middle name tigether?

Margaret or Marguerite.

Thanks. Ideally not Margaret as that is MIL. I want the full name to sound nice for when you need it in official situations - job interviews, exams, graduation, school register, medical appointments, church ceremonies, family tree...

Margaret. A name that seems to be getting more popular in itself but has many versions - Margot, Marjorie, Daisy, Peggy, Maguerite, Greta, ...

How about Magdalen or a version of but with Meg as the known name. Downside is that it can be pronounced Maudlin.

Sorry, just realised you said your dh didn't like it.

Margaret is the standard one. Magda? Magdalena?

Meg is traditionally short for Margaret, not sure what else apart from Megan gives Meg

Megara. It's a bit disney but it's pretty.

Not sure if Roselyn is a new name. Rose Lynne. I like Rosalind and Rosamund but they are pronounced Roz-uh-lind and Roz-uh-mund.
I don't like May but it's quite nice as a surname.

I never understand trying to find a name to fit in these circumstances. You want to call your child Meg, so just call her Meg ?

Threeandabit Wed 23-Aug-17 23:01:59

There is the name Madigan which might work at a push. However, I suppose it is more likely to be shortened to Maddie. It's Irish and I have only ever seen it written down, so maybe I am pronouncing it wrongly anyway.

Kim82 Wed 23-Aug-17 23:04:57

I LOVE Meg. I have a 10 year old Megan that goes by Meg more often than not, it's my favourite ever girls name and it's a shame your dh isn't keen. Could you not talk him round?

Other than that the only other name I can think of that naturally gives the nickname Meg is Margaret.
