I have a deep fondness for this name, I'll admit. It's largely based on the use of it on the Decemberists' album "The Hazards of Love." Whenever I hear this name, I imagine the Margaret from the album. She's a young woman who helps an injured fawn, only to discover he's a shape-shifter. They fall in love, which angers his adoptive mother, the Queen of the forest. Her songs, sung by Becky Stark, are gorgeous, especially "Won't Want for Love (Margaret in the Taiga)."
