Maggie was my name when I was young. There are still some of my relatives that call me Maggie instead of Pandora. Anyway, I love both of my names.

Most people think that the name Maggie is only used as a nickname but my full name is Maggie on my birth certificate.

"Maggie May" is a lovely song by Rod Stewart.

"Maggie" could be also a pet form of "Magdalena", "Magdalene", "Margarita".

I once made up a limerick about this name, and it had the words
baggy and shaggy in it.

Maggie sounds like Maggot and just isn't nice to look at. I dislike it greatly.

A famous bearer is actress Maggie Wheeler (b. August 7, 1961). She auditioned for the role of Monica Geller on the American sitcom "Friends" (1994-2004), but ended up playing Janice, Chandler Bing's on-again, off-again girlfriend. She also auditioned for the role of Debra Barone in the CBS sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond" (1996-2005). She did however end up playing the recurring role of Debra's friend, Linda.

Country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw's second daughter is named Maggie Elizabeth. I really like this name all on its own. :-)
Diamante04  10/10/2006
This was the nickname of the eldest daughter on the 1990s sitcom "The Nanny".

Maggie Tulliver - heroine of George Elliot's "The Mill on the Floss" (based on her, supposedly)

Also, in Ricky Gervais' (comedy hero) "Extras", Maggie is Andy Milburn's ditsy best friend.

I want to like Maggie but all I hear is maggot.
― Anonymous User  5/2/2007
It's our blue tick's name, so it just doesn't sound like a poeple name to me anymore.
gym4god  5/17/2007
I like the name Maggie. It's one of my favorites for a girl. Technically it is short for Margaret, but I would name my daughter Magdalene and use Maggie as her nickname.
WhiteButterflied  7/13/2007
Maggie can also be short for the following names: Margarita, Marguerite, or Magdalene.
CharlieRob  7/28/2007
I think Maggie is a really sweet name. For a real name, or for a nick-name.
applemilk  8/22/2007
This was the name of the dog I had when I was a teenager. My sisters and I named her after the song "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart. I've known a human Maggie and I liked her. In spite of this, I've always felt that this was the worst nickname for Margaret. I guess because, as the other posters have pointed out, it makes me think of "maggot".
queenv  9/27/2007
My sister's name. She carries an awesome name.
Rosie is amazing  10/8/2007
I think this is a great name. One of the few I can see working for all age groups easily. It's cute on a little girl but still works on an adult.

Comedian Jon Stewart's daughter is named Maggie Rose Stewart.

The Fischer quintuplets are born in Aberdeen, South Dakota, the world's fourth surviving set of quints and the first in the United States. Jimmie, Cathy, Margie, Mary Ann and Maggie join five other siblings and are joined by a single baby sister, Cindy, born September 24, 1964.
Patricia Underwood  5/28/2008
Margie, Maggie and Mary Ann? That's awful.

Maggie could also concievably be used on a male as a nickname for Magnus. I have seen this in a movie (Hitch) and once in real life.

Maggie Seaver was the name of the mother on Growing Pains.
KrisMichelle  8/1/2008
My own name is Maggie. It's short for Margaret, though the only people who ever call me that are just trying to be a pain. I love my name, personally. It's not overused, and I think it's cute. Although, other pains find it funny to use insults according to the name such as Miggie (don't ask), or Maggot. Although I really hate the name Margaret, my middle name would sound stupid next to Maggie. Margaret Alice sounds much better than Maggie Alice.
MaggAims2Live  8/11/2008
Ugh, I'm sorry to say that this name both sounds and looks awful. No reason in particular, but it just seems plain ugly. No offense to all the Maggies out there!

Whats the big deal with all these Maggie Moos. It's so annoying and I don't see why any one would name their kid Maggie Moo (lastname).
Zaldy4life  7/8/2009
Uhh, sorry about my comment up there in 2009. I was immature back then, and I somehow didn't realize that Maggie Moo is a nickname. As a nickname, it's cute.
Zaldy4life  11/1/2013
In my opinion, this name is ugly. No offense to anyone with the name, but it doesn't sound right. It's more suitable as a nickname, even though I hate it as that too. I hate the nicknames Gabby & Maggie, especially as names!
― Anonymous User  10/1/2009
I've always had problems with people not believing my name was Maggie on my birth cert! I've never minded it as I was always the only Maggie in school. I was called after my grandma and it's a name most used for dogs and in made for tv movies ha! But as I get older I don't mind it too much and I love Rod Stewart's Maggie May, puts me in a good mood usually! Sad to see all the negative press about it!

I really like the name Maggie, but only as a nickname. I like it best as a nickname for Margaret, but it would also work for Magdalene or Magnolia. I just think that once Maggie's an adult, she needs a more professional name to use.
― Anonymous User  6/4/2012
I agree with the comment above. Maggie as a full name sounds a little unprofessional, but I love it as a nickname for Margaret. If I named my daughter Margaret, I'd probably call her Maggie or Mae as a nickname, although I think the name Margaret is really pretty on its own :)

When I see Maggie I think "Maggot."
Luvbug86  12/15/2016
It's cute, but at the same time, it makes me think of Maggie-Moo-Cow. Not a fan. There are better nicknames for Margaret.

Our granddaughter is named Maggie, and my grandson, her older brother, Benjamin, approximately five years old when she was born in 2007. Benjamin liked the name so much because of watching the "Simpsons." The baby was named Maggie, and he wanted a little sister.

Her Hebrew name is Miriam in memory of her beloved Great Grandmother, my beautiful Mother.

Too youthful for an adult, but with a full name of Magdalene, Maggie is the cutest nickname in the world for a little girl, until she's older like 17 or 18.
Sania01  9/20/2017
Whoever decided the name Maggie was okay is wrong. I don't know what else to say, it's just the worst ever.
