this is my name of the week....I really like it after meeting someone recently of this name who totally wiped out any residual thoughts of Margot Leadbetter....i think it could be a really classy name for both a little girl and also a grown up woman....your thoughts please

hmmm ... i think i like it

it may be a grower ...

I have one. I keep name-changing though, so it probably seems like there are about 5 MNers with a Margot. She's 7

I love it! Margot Fonteyn is a nice association too.

I like it

I always think of Anne Frank's elder sister.

Has a classy 1930s feel to it IMO.

I Have an Aunt called this and have always loved it ( and she is a very nice aunt too). you could always call her Margaret as full name and shorten it ot Margot

then later on she can choose a different short form if she prefers

maggieleo - what do you call her for short? someone suggested Miggy which i think is very sweet....

It's not to my personal taste, but there isn't anything wrong with it.

I know a Margot who is three.

She is so very very beauiful, sweet and calm. A true angel. Because of her I could never have bad thoughts about the name - for me it is an absolute winner!

I know a little Margeaux which I think has a lovely spelling rather than Margot.

GrendelsMum Wed 02-Sep-09 19:25:49

Lovely name.

I much prefer the look of Margo, even though linguistically incorrect. I don't like Margot

It's lovely and a refreshing change from all the zillions of names ending in -a.

I think I read once that Margaux Hemingway was actually named Margot. I'd probably go for the more usual spelling.

PfftTheMagicDragon Wed 02-Sep-09 19:39:29

I love that O sounding on the end of names, so punchy and strong without being masculine.

jkklpu Wed 02-Sep-09 19:47:25

I like it but prefer Margaux, too

jellybeans Wed 02-Sep-09 20:33:17

I really don't like it, sorry, too old grannyish for me.

Meglet Wed 02-Sep-09 20:39:06

Margot is so pretty!

Tortington Wed 02-Sep-09 20:39:38

the good life - thats all that it conjures up for me

sweetkitty Wed 02-Sep-09 20:41:21

Not that keen sorry

DownyEmerald Wed 02-Sep-09 20:43:20

I know a little 3 year old Margot - it's lovely. Margot-moo.

Not Margeaux - think that when you see it written down it takes a couple of goes to realise how it's pronounced.

macherie Wed 02-Sep-09 20:43:41

I think it's lovely smile

My mums sister is Margaret, but mum always calls her Margot (I have always called her Aunty Mar!)

PuzzleRocks Wed 02-Sep-09 20:43:45

Beautiful. Makes me want to have a third daughter.

EachPeachPearMum Wed 02-Sep-09 20:44:28

It's lovely- we were going to use it this time round as a middle name... but we had a boy.
