Is it too old fashioned?

Quickerthanavicar Sat 17-Feb-18 20:52:11

Love it

It's a great name.

LynetteScavo Sat 17-Feb-18 20:55:44

No, not old fashioned!

I live it, and names I love tend to get very have been warned.

I think Minions is popularising it.

ChocolateCrunch Sat 17-Feb-18 20:57:51

I like it too. Often gets suggested on here, although I don't know any personally.

TheAntiBoop Sat 17-Feb-18 20:57:58

It is increasingly popular - probably due to Margot Robbie!

AdidasGirl Sat 17-Feb-18 20:58:56

Love it.

It's my daughter's name. She is almost 3 now. We love it. Think it's a bit of a marmite name though, some people obviously don't get the appeal when introduced. But it's mainly well received. Glad you are going for this spelling as well as I'm not fond of the alternatives. Xx

Love it. Great name. Not at all old fashioned. In fact very modern. It is getting very popular. I know a few baby Margots (along with Silvia). That may or may not bother.

I love it, was on my list for dd2.

Neonyellow Sat 17-Feb-18 21:13:20

It’s a gorgeous name and wish I had used it!

catchyjem Sat 17-Feb-18 21:14:11

Love it!

I love it! Was meant to be DD(3)'a name but when she was born she just didn't look like a Margot... (still doesn't!)

Mrsknackered Sat 17-Feb-18 21:34:48

Love it

I have a pet mouse called Margot, she's lovely grin

MissDollyMix Sat 17-Feb-18 21:38:14

I really like it but I do always think of the character from The Good Life.

DramaAlpaca Sat 17-Feb-18 21:41:07

It's increasingly popular but not my style. I know the 't' on the end is silent but to me the name looks quite harsh written down.

MaisyPops Sat 17-Feb-18 21:42:40

I love it but it reminds me always of the character in The Good Life.
At least I think she was called Margot. Long dresses, quite posh, lived next door to Tom and Barbara.

gossipgirl28 Sat 17-Feb-18 21:42:48

Prefer names to be spelled how they are pronounced 'Margo' instead I see 'Margot' as Mar-got. I'm not very keen on it tbh but That's just my personal preference.

Think it would get shortened to marg or Maggie xoxo

NancyJoan Sat 17-Feb-18 21:46:01

Love it

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sat 17-Feb-18 21:49:24

It's nice but even if I had 10 girls. It wouldn't feature in my top 1,000.
I don't like it spelt Margot, though. It makes me think of Maggots

NewYearNiki Sat 17-Feb-18 22:15:55

Too old fashioned.

applepi3 Sat 17-Feb-18 22:54:25

Thanks for your opinions xx Overall positive i think.

Jerry! Mrs Mountjoy is waiting!

But ... I am over 50. If you are un your early 30s, you can ignore The Good Life references (but older relatives might quietly snigger wink)
