Margaret and Wilhelmina
Two separate posts in one thread.
1.) Do you pronounce Margaret as two syllables or three? MAHR-grit or MAHR-guh-rit (or something else)? I heard someone on the radio saying it as MAHR-grit and I really don't like that at all! I definitely prefer having the "guh" sound in there.
2.) What's your favorite nickname for Wilhelmina?"Adopting one child won’t change the world: but for that child, the world will change." -- unknown

1) I pronounce Margaret, MAHR-gar-it, 3 syllables...
I'm actually watching Regular show right now and they pronounce it MAHR-grit, which I don't ever remember hearing before this show. I don't like it either.
2) My fave nickname for Wilhemina is Mina (mee-nah). I don't like Willa or Winnie but that is just my personal tasteI like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.
