    I LOVE Margot, it's so simple and elegant, and will last from childhood to adulthood through whatever career path she'll choose. Margot wins my vote.
    Marguerite comes in second, but it's never been a favorite of mine. I can't explain it. It just doesn't have the graceful charm that other French names (like Margot!) do.
    Margaret speaks prim-and-proper woman in her 30s with a desk job, and while it does offer an array of nicknames, I know many more Margarets who go by Meg than go by Maggie.
    Magdalena is a little too consonant-heavy, and consequently throaty, plus there's always that slight negative connotation.

    You can also get Maggie from Magnolia, Magritte and Magaidh.

    I'm a big fan of classic Margaret. Margot doesn't have that same feminine charm for me and Marguerite and Magdalena are a little too exotic for me to really get behind.

    Margaret or Margot! Both seems classic but simple in a way. Magdalena and Marguerite are a little too grand and over-the-top for my taste.
    Boys: Maxwell, Bennett, Oliver, Elliott and Archer.

    Girls: Rose, Juliet, Aria, Cora and Scarlett


    Sorry for any random spellings. I'm probably on my nook!

    I prefer Margaret with the nickname Maggie. Margot is so simple that I think it works best without a nickname.
