Personal experiences with the name Marguerite: | Edit

Our almost 5-year old daughter is named Marguerite. We call her Maggie. I like the options and french nature of it as well as the connection with flowers and pearls. It feels feminine and has a traditional "normal" nickname (or several possible nicknames), and can easily be adapted by the girl as she grows to suit her age/stage/personality. We like it :)
