    No nickname. Margaret is a gorgeous name!

    If you have to pick one, I prefer Greta (although it also stands on it's own nicely and I actually don't like it as a nickname for Margaret) and I really don't like Maisie at all. Too "shabby chic" feel to me.

    Agree with this. Maisie also seems very trendy to me (as in, it suddenly seems everywhere), while Greta seems more established.

DH and I both like Maisie and Greta and can't decide between the two. They seem to be very different to me, but I can't figure out exactly how... I'd love to hear some thoughts on both of them and see how others perceive each name. It might help us decide!

    Thanks!
    I prefer Maisie as a nickname! It's so cute!
    Sincerely, Jennifer

    I love both nicknames so much! I voted for Maisie just because I think it's so cute on a baby/little girl, but I agree that Greta ages better.

    Love Greta. I would use this if my husband would agree!
