The first thing that came to mind was Peregrine.Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

@teacherma - Pearl is nice, and the meaning of the original name is a good way to approach it. Jeannine is maybe a little dated but I kind of like it, and it would definitely work as a middle name.
@vaness1 - Huh, I never would have thought of Peggy as a nn for Patricia. Definitely dated, and to the same time period too. I suppose I would just put "Peggy" in the middle if I were going to use one of those. It's interesting finding out what names people actually use IRL though! Magnolia Jane nn Meg, or Magnolia Jean, either one would be pretty sweet, I gotta say. My husband hasn't totally thrown it out so maybe it will grow on him. He's funny like that. We considered Magdalen once before (baby turned out to be a boy) and I forgot about that one. I will make a list of all these suggestions so I don't forget again! I just thought of Megaera yesterday, another good suggestion, and I want to love it but I just don't.
@anyasilver - Greta, now there's a path I wouldn't have considered. You know if you search for some of the variations of Margaret, the search results will often show forum posts with other group efforts thinking of ways to honor/get nicknames/etc. I just found that yesterday when I was doing a bit of searching of my own.
@alexa400 - Peregrine is brilliant. I should have posed this question two years ago though -- our 14-month-old is a boy named Peregrine. I probably could have sold MIL on the name connection a year ago. LOL Figures! I tried to come up with a "J" middle name so the initials would be the same, but the actual family names as middles won out in the end.
@taz - back to Marigold. I'm kind of smitten with this one, though hubby seemed to think it's overly cheerful. Maybe I could use it in the middle somewhere; MY mom loves Marigolds.
Thanks for the ideas so far, Berries! I guess I ought to have posted this in the general "talk about names" forum, because I wouldn't be opposed to naming a boy an "inspired by" name from a grandma.
