Margot was the name of Anne Frank's sister.

My name is Margaret and my nickname was always Margot as a child. Margot sounds more powerful and substantial than Maggie and Peggy, which I disliked because they sounded so frivolous.

Also used in Sweden (not as common today) where the 't' is pronounced, MAR-gott.

I don't like this name because it looks too much like maggot. Nice name though.

Also pronounced MAR-go in English, with the stress on the second syllable.

I really like his name - maybe because it's mine. However, most people when reading my name out loud mispronounce it as mar-GOTT.

This is my name and I used to HATE it. Substitute teachers would always mispronounce it MAR-gott, and for some reason through elementary and middle school my classmates found that extremely hilarious. Now I don't get teased as much, once people get used to my name, and I think it is unique and powerful, and I love it.

In Germany Margot is pronounced similar to the Swedish; MAR-gawt.

I love this name, reminds me of a very good looking woman.

No way, no one has mentioned Margot Kidder who played Lois Lane opposite Christopher Reeves' Superman! :-o

Whenever I hear this name I always think of the band Margot & the Nuclear So and So's. Which is actually how I came to like the name so much. Also, wonderful band by the way.

I prefer it spelled Margo, because the T is silent (so why even have it?) and because it looks like "maggot" when spelled that way.

I really do like this name. It sounds traditional, respectable, and unique.

Margo is much better than Margot. (maggot) Fair enough if you're from a country with a lot of 'silent t at the end of words' though. In English-speaking countries though, the t at the end tricks the eye. Although, that said, obviously someone isn't going to be called Maggot.

The spelling is far to close to "maggot" for my liking.

Margot Eskens is a German Schlager singer, most popular in the 1950s and 1960s. She continued to be a frequent guest on television programs into the 2000s.

I'm really surprised at all of the posts associating this spelling with "maggot," which had never even occurred to me.

Margot is my favorite spelling - Margo is boring and looks incomplete to me, and Margaux (even though it's a real place in France) as a name just looks like it's trying way, way too hard to be "cool". But Margot remains classic, and can function well as a first or middle name.

My two year old daughter is Margot. We have not had anyone mispronounce her name, and all feedback has been positive. I feel that she can be taken seriously as a Margot no matter what she chooses to do in life. I also like that while it is a name that most people know, it is not overly popular.

Margot Betti Frank was the eldest daughter of Otto Frank and Edith Frank and the older sister of Anne Frank. Margot's deportation order from the Gestapo hastened the Frank family into hiding. According to the diary of her younger sister, Anne, Margot kept a diary of her own, but no trace of Margot's diary has ever been found. She died in Bergen-Belsen.

No, I don’t like this name. It sounds harsh. There’s so many gorgeous names out there & this isn’t one of them.
