Our surname is Gator. We have a daughter called Ottilie, if this one's a girl I like Allegra.

Too cruel?

All other girl name suggestions welcome. I also like Genevieve and Margot.....

Alligator could be a cute nickname or a nightmare. I'd like it but I imagine others could equally hate it.

I think you know the answer .

Sorry - I think it would end up being comic! I love Margot though and I think it goes well with Ottolie.

I think it's cool. Margot Gator doesn't sound anywhere near as nice and I'm not keen on Genevieve.

Doesn't work.

Also Margot Gator sounds and looks awful to me - like some sort of made-up widget machine in a bad comedy, the margogater-5000

Margot Gator is quite hard to say. Like a bit tongue twisterish. Also wouldn't call her Allegra.

I like Genevieve.
Florence is nice.

I love the name Allegra, but not in a million years with Gator.

Margot Gator isn’t great, either.

No as well, sorry op we seem to be drawn to names we shouldn't use.

I don't like Margot Gator either. And I'd worry Gennie Gator sounds like generator! Genevieve is nice if no danger of shortening. I may be over thinking with that one though.

No lol (sorry)
I knew a dwane pipe , bless him!

I have a Margot (great name imo)! 😀

earlgreyandgherkins Fri 08-Dec-17 11:56:58

Tho , perhaps Margot gator is a little too 'hard' sounding ? 😕 with the two strong G sounds
