    Getting to Margot with Double Names

    I really love Margot, but with our last name also ending in a long "o" sound (3 syllables), I'm a little worried about the flow/rhymey-ness of it as a standalone name.

    So then I got to thinking...I also love double-barreled names, as well as "smoosh" names (i.e. using two names to get to another "nickname").

    What name combos would you suggest to get to Margot as a nickname (or as we say in the South, a "call by")?

    I've thought of Mary Golden or Mary Gloria, but I don't know if I'm totally sold on Mary (I think Golden is super cool, and Gloria is a GP for me).

    Send any suggestions! Also open to other "smoosh" names as well

    The smoosh name idea is cute! Do you like the names Margaret, Marguerite, or Marjorie/Margery because those could easily be shortened to Margot.

    My smoosh suggestions:

    Marley Golda
    Marlene Gloria

    I also noticed in your signature that you like the name Olive so perhaps you could incorporate that as a middle to a double barrel name which would be quite the smoosh indeed. I'm not saying you have to hyphenate a double barrel name, I just am so you can see the first name versus the middle.

    Mara-Grace Olive

    Martha-Gwen Olive

    Other "Mar" names I could think of but not with a middle:
    Marianna
    Mariela

    Honestly I think a lot of "Mar" names could be shortened to Margot. Hope you like some of them!

    If you like Mary-Golden, why not just name her Marigold and call her Margo/Margot

    I think I'd actually go with Margot - the extra syllable of your surname would hopefully break up the rhyme- but that's just me Mary Gloria is cute though and pps' ideas of Margaret nn Margot, Marigold nn Margo are great.

    I'll also suggest Magnolia 'Margo', Madeleine Georgia 'Margo', Tamara Golden, Marnie Georgia/Marnie Golda

    I'm certainly not opposed to just using Margot outright - thanks for the reassurance @greyblue!

    I feel like Margot would need a good, sort of punchy/unexpected/cool middle name to work. Any thoughts on middles for Margot 0rl@nd0? Does this even work as a fn/ln combo or should I move on?

    Personally I really love the suggestion of Magnolia nn Margot. Using another variation of Margaret nn Margot is also a good idea.

    Margot 0rl@nd0 almost sounds like one word to me because the O ending and beginning sounds run into eachother. I think the idea of a mash up name is fun, but then I have know people who have mushed their initials into a name and go by that so I am very open to unconventional nns.

    Malinda Odette
    Malinda Golden
    Melissa Georgine
    Matilda Glow
    (I think any mix and match with these comboswould totally work too)

    Punchy mns to break up the O sounds
