It is common for people to assume that your full name is Megan or Margaret even if you introduce yourself as a Meg.
I am Meg, short for Margaret. Although I love my name, people often assume I am called Megan, or if they find out my name is Margaret before I tell them I'm Meg, they call me Maggie.
Adding to that, my full name is Meg, and that is what it says on my birth certificate. I was named after the main character in "A Wrinkle in Time". It drives me insane when people constantly call me Megan, and I've actually had people deny that Meg was actually my name. WHO KNOWS ME BETTER ME OR YOU. Also, Meg is really hard to nickname, so people end up calling me complete other names, like, Les, Leslie, Meglet etc. Although, it's the best name in the world (being bias) I love it.
