Well crap.My husband is having second thoughts on "the" name...
I thought it was a done deal that we were going to use Margot if our next one is a girl. Now my husband is having second thoughts. He is worried that Margot sounds off with our son's name Leo. Too similar. So it looks like we are back to trying to narrow down our list.
We are 99.9 percent sure if the next one is a boy he will be Augustin (Gus) Theodore.
So here is our very short list. I would love to hear your opinions on each name and hear which one you like best with Leo and Augustin (Gus)
Margot Elizabeth (or Victoria)- Our last name starts with an N so I am not sure about the initials MEN
Ok please help! we plan on starting to TTC in the next couple months and it only took one try to get pregnant with our son so I am expecting to be pregnant soon and really want to have a girls name chosen.
Thank you guys so much!~Beautiful son Leo Alexander born 2012~
Girls: Evangeline~Penelope~Emmeline~Margot~Caroline~Augus ta

Margot is okay by Leo, but I have to agree, it is kind of matchy.
With Leo and Augustin, my first pick would be Genevieve -- a trio medieval, yet timely, and completely wonderful. Considering nn Gus in the mix though, I think Emmeline would be my pick, because it seems less romantically medieval and a little bit more modern.

Have you thought of using Margaret as the first name? Margot as a nickname with Leo isn't so bad, but Maggie can also come from Margaret. They all mean the same thing and come from each other. Or you could just do Maggie.
Another name that is similar to Maggie is Agnes, with the nickname of Aggie or Ness or Nessa. Leo and Agnes sound good to me.
Otherwise I like Genevieve "Eve" or Evangeline "Eve" or "Angie".I'm so indecisive; one day I love a name, the next I'm not so sure anymore.

Oh my can you talk him out of it? My name is Caroline Margot and I have been known by my second name for a long time and I love it. It feels so right. I think it is elegant and sophisticated and fits well with the handsome Leo.
To avoid matchiness you could chase another derivative of the name but in the end your family will be known as Margot and Leo.
My mother was Margot too.
I just love Evangeline she is so perfect, just my style. I would choose Evangeline Marguerite though as I find Margaret rather clunky whereas Evangeline Marguerite is light and air and loads of femininity.
Genevieve Alice, I must say that I was in love with Genevieve for years but she has been pushed to No 2 spot now that I love Evangeline so much.
Penelope is not for me. We had one girl at school named Penelope but her nn of Penny was all we knew her by and I quite like Penny.
Can't wait to see your short short list.
