- Personal experiences with the name Margo: | Edit
My name is Margo, and my friends call me Margs, Megsta, Mango or just plain M. It's funny cuz i used to hate it as a kid as it was unusual, but now i like it for that same reason. It does drive me crazy when people spell it with a "t" at the end thou, like the French version.
There was a customer at a place where I worked whose name was Margot, pronounced Mar-got (the t was pronounced)
