View Full Version : Girls first name to go with Margaret as a middle name?
If we have a girl I would like to use Margaret as a middle name (my mothers middle name). Which of the following first names do you think go well?
or I could use Jill which is her first name but its hard to find a first name that goes with Jill, maybe
Any comments and suggestions would really help!
Hi my mothers name is margaret and her middle name is pauline (which probably doesnt help)
I like Claire Margaret and i also like Chloe Margaret
my mums middle name is margaret her name is dawn,,,, dawn margaret,,,, i like jillan Grace out of the names you listed
Claire is nice , it's my middle name but mine is spelt Clare, no I.
Mymums name is margaret and her middle name is joan, don't know about it the other way around maybe a bit old fashioned??
I must like the A sound lol
Good luck decided :)
I like Claire Margaret out of the names you suggested.
Joanie Margaret (like what Tanya suggested, but a difference...Joanie is cute!)
I know a gorgeous girl who is chloe margaret. Claire Margaret is cute too.
Here is my 2 cents worth...
Why don't you use Jill/Jillian as a middle name?
I like Claire Margaret. Anna Margaret may clash with Ashleighs first name.
I also like Zoe Margaret. Very cute name.
Rachael - 29:o
DH - 28:smiliedance:
Bub due any day:)
Sorry, just popped back in and realised your other daughter is Ashleigh, and here i was suggesting Ashleigh for a name! lol Silly me....:o sorry.....
you could shorten the Margaret if you liked ie
Just another suggestion:D
I think Meggie really pretty maybe you could use this...as is a shortening of Margeret...and Jillie/Gilly is pretty too as a shortened version of Jillian...
If you choose a traditional name like you mums for middle maybe a less traditional one for 1st?
When I saw the post the first name that came to mind was Eva Margaret
My DD is Emily Margaret.....
I like Grace Margaret
My niece's name is Jenna Margaret. She was named after my sister Margaret Kim (nicknamed Mardi) who passed away.
I like Clare Margaret, but I would drop the "i". Maybe even Clara Margaret?
My mums name is Marina Margaret. I used Marina as Jasmine's middle name.
My DD is Sienna Marguerite...which is also my middle name and my mums best friends first name, tho her friend had everyone call her Marg or Margaret. Just another alternative to using Margaret, might make it easier to find a first name that sounds 'right' :)
I like Stacey Margaret!! Or Stacia Margaret!!
There are some really good suggestions coming in - thanks everyone, you have put some fresh ideas in my mind, keep them coming!!!!!!!!!!!
I definitely like the idea of altering Margaret to Marguerite - only because I have an issue with family names after being named after a person who died 25 days before I was born and subsequently, I spent my entire like hearing "oh isn't she like Leonie? She looks just like Leonie? I wonder if she is Leonie incarnate" etc. For the record I am nothing like her.
However, choosing Marguerite or even Maggie is still honouring the name (and the person) you are naming her after, while giving your daughter that little sense of self.
Just my 2c, no offence intended!! (just had 30 years of experience, and its STILL going!!)
