    I have been warming to it lately. I think it is lovely, but yes, a lot of people will think it's a bit dated.

    Margaret and Leo sound lovely together. Leo's middle name is Alexander, which is quite a classic name. Margaret is classic, yet old fashioned, so I would pair Margaret with a more lively, Leo-ish sounding name (if you get what I mean, something youthful), like Elsie, or Elise, maybe Ella or Isla?

    You could always use Margot as a full name. Leo & Margot both have the O ending, but I still sounds good.

    Good luck!

    One of my best friends is named Margaret, and she has always hated her name. She thinks it's boring and is thinking of changing/using her middle name (Cecile, which I think is just as boring).
    I love Margaux (I prefer this spelling) and I often call her this. I think Margaret is pretty boring, but I think on the right person it is usable.

    It may be an older name but that doesn't make it boring or bad to use. It's very pretty and you don't hear it as often anymore which I think makes it more special. I think it would go well with your son's name. They both just seem like classics.

    I like Margaret more as a middle name choice but it works as a first too. Personally I don't like Margot at all.
