Thread: Too matchy?

  1. #1

    Too matchy?

    We recently found out that I am pregnant with our surprise shock baby. My husband's grandmother recently passed away, and I was hoping to use her name, Marjorie, in some way- maybe with the nickname Margo. Unfortunantly, with our last name, which is close to McGee I'm afraid it is too matchy. So, is Margo McGee too matchy or is it a cute matchy (if that is even possible)?

    I think Margo McGee is fine. I mean it's a bit cutesy but workable, they're similar sounding but distinct and well-known within themselves.

    To honour a Margorie, you could pretty much use anything that stems from or relates to Margaret; Marguerite, Megan, Molly, Greta, Rita, Maisie, Maggie, Mamie, Madge, Mairead, Gretchen, Margareta. I do think Margo is adorable and a great way to honour Margorie, but if you did want something a bit less matchy these could all work.

    I really love the sound of Margo McGee -- I'm an absolute sucker for alliteration. I also love the name Marjorie. It's too bad Marjorie McGee is a bit over the top. I think I might prefer Margot as a full name and Margo as a nickname.

    Margo McGee is fine. But I'd change the spelling to Margot, just so both names don't end in a vowel. But that's just my name OCD though.
