Which is your favourite please?

I prefer Francesca personally. Margot feels a bit nicknamey rather than its own name. Francesca feels more distinguished.

But the only thing that matters is what you prefer !

Francesca - a beautiful name and lots of cute nicknames - Cesca, Ches, Frankie, Fran, Franie
Never liked Margot.

Francesca ❤️

Margo spelt like this not Margot as you will encounter people who will pronounce it as it is spelt. As for Francesca it it will wind up being Frannie, Francie et all as its such a long name.

Way way way too many little Margots around at the moment.

Definitely Francesca, beautiful name!Margot looks like 'maggot' written down. I really dislike the name sorry!

There is always the more unusual Margaux spelling.

It’s a lovely name.

I like Francesca but can’t stand Fran, Franny, Frankie or Chesca.

Like them both, Francesca is more of a classic with more short form options so I’d go for that.

CheerfulYank · 27/05/2022 02:35

I really like them both! I have a Margaret and I wish we’d gone with Margo as the shortening sometimes. However she is firmly a Maggie :)

Margot is truly hideous. Francesca is beautiful.

Much prefer Margot.
Or Frances.

I like Margot but it's so trendy right now.

I really, really dislike Francesca. It just feels so... unnecessary.

Frances is beautiful!

Francesca is beautiful.

Margot = maggot.

It's also the name every wannabe chic and unique 30-something is currently calling their daughter. Male equivalent, Rowan.
