This is my favorite name, I love it!
- Personal experiences with the name Marigold: | Edit
I love this name and it was on my short list for my baby girl, but when she was born it just didn't fit her. I associate Marigold with a blond or red-head or even chestnut-haired little girl, I guess because of the word "gold" in it, and my baby was born with black hair. I know a baby born around the same time as mine and she is named Marigold. In my opinion she is a lucky baby because she will grow up to have an unusual but pretty, fanciful but not kooky, name.
My Cousins Name is Marigold, My dad nicknamed her Goldie, but he's the only one who calls her that, because she prefers Marigold from anyone but him (they're fairly close, she spent a lot of time with my parents when they were first married- before me). she's never had any problems with people making fun of her, and sometimes introduces her self as Mari to simplify it (and as an alibi)
