I really like Montgomery, especially since it means so much to you. Go for it! It's hard to regret something so special. Your grandma seems awesome

I understand the sentimental value behind the name, but for me - it works better as a middlename.
I wouldn't like to be called Montgomery as a girl, if I'm honest, no matter how dear the family member is.
What about Olive Montgomery? Livia Montgomery?
Or Liva Montgomery? (lee-va) which is a Scandinavian pet name/short form of Olivia.

Yikes, that's awful!
There's nothing charming about Montgomery. It's a sweet sentiment, but why burden your poor daughter with such a name? Not to mention what middle school boys will do with a name containing the word MOUNT.

Also, just saw you have a son called Jackson... I'm not sure... Jackson and Montgomery - even if you call her Maggie or Molly, I would assume they were brothers. And if you use it and then ahve another boy (Charles) I would feel Charles falls completely outside the sib set.
Plus, Charles Montgomery Burns from the Simpsons spring to mind :P
