    Nickname for Margaret, or maybe not?

    Miles & Dean are getting a sister. We’ve pretty much settled on Margaret (to honor my grandmother), but can’t decide if we want to call her that exclusively or go with a nickname. Does it fit with our boys names as is? Our nickname preferences right now are Daisy and Greta.

    I prefer the full name or Daisy. Another nickname that has not been mentioned is Pearl.

    I think you'll know when she gets here maybe? She might really suit Margaret or Daisy will be much more suited to her personality!
    I think because Margaret has so much nn potential though, I'd probably end up using one

    I think you should use Margaret! It has so many nickname options (my favorites being Mae, Greta and Maisie) that it would suit any kind of girl. Just Greta and just Daisy on the other hand are a bit more limited

    I agree with pp -- start off with Margaret and then see what feels most natural when you meet baby girl. For what it's worth, I think Margaret, Greta, and Daisy all work well with Miles and Dean.

    Any of them work well with your boys. My favourite nicknames are Maisie and Margot
