I used to hate Maisie as either a standalone or a nickname. With an all-consuming fiery passion sort of hate.
I've now warmed up to it a lot. It's the name of the heroine in a mystery series I love, and I recently met a sharp, confident, teen Maisy who wore it very well. I'm sure forming associations beyond the picture book mouse has helped me like Maisie more.
Whether or not it has the legs to stand alone, I'm undecided but leaning toward no. I prefer it as a nn for Margaret, and I like the Maisie spelling.
