MsGolightly:  so, because “everyone” has one, she needs one? That is some idiotic logic. If everyone in your family does _____ it doesn’t mean she has to also. If you have to force a nickname, it’s not worth it.

MsGolightly:  there is nothing to calm down about because no one is worked up. If you want to give her a nickname, I think that’s great, but the “logic” of “everyone else does it” is not a reason to continue to do something, lots of people do plenty of things. That doesn’t mean they should be continued to be done. That was my only point; do something because you want to, not because “everyone does it.” I wasn’t trying to offend you.

MsGolightly:  My advice is just name her Margot if you like that name and a nickname (probably many) will happen organically. My dad still calls me “Baby” 90% of the time. My Fiance usually calls me ErBear. Most of my girlfriends from college and high school still call me by my last name. Many people can’t figure out an actual name they like, so you’ve got that covered!

BookTea:  That’s actually not how I read it. I read it as OP was acknowledging that, given her knowledge of her family and its history, it’s unavoidable that someone will try to use a nickname and she wanted to get ahead of that. Totally valid in my opinion, and not an “everyone does it” type of reaction. 

OP – I love “M” or even “Mar” when you need to shorten it. Other than that I think you could just call her the full name, which is lovely.

If she ends up having a lot of energy you could call her “Mar-gone” because you can’t keep up with her. tcgstar said M, or you could go as far as Emmy.

MsGolightly:  I haven’t seen Fargo so I don’t know if Margie is pronounced with a hard or soft g, could you do Margie with a hard g? I’ve know two people named Marguerite that go by Mar-gee. But I completely agree with PPs that Margot doesn’t need a nickname!

MsGolightly:  My husband and I are nicknamey people, too (he even goes by a variation of our last name). Our 8 month old son’s name is Miles and when we first came up with it I was kinda bummed there are no good nicknames. Anyway, our son has a bunch of nicknames but they have nothing to do with his name haha. “Mr. Magoo” might be my favorite…..

PS Love the name Margot btw!

MsGolightly:  Most likely, she will choose her own nickname, which will be one of the suggestions you didn’t like above in your original post.  My mom named me one name after my her middle name.  And guess what?  As soon as I could make a decision a nickname was dropped and she called me my original name for a few more years until she finally gave up and started calling me what I wanted.
