Personal Impression
I’ve always liked this cool, spunky name, but wow, it’s getting popular! For good reason, though! I haven’t met any Margots but would love to meet one!

When I think of the name Margot, I think of Anne Frank’s older sister. Overall, it’s a good name.

Why are all the comments about the name looking like 'maggot' being downvoted? It's true, and a valid reason to dislike it.

It's not overdone like Margaux, it's not underdone like Margo, it's just right and I love it!
Very chic and stylish. It's not the prettiest sounding, but it has a special flare of its own.

Even worse than Margo.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

The spelling is far to close to "maggot" for my liking.
RoseTintsMyWorld  5/11/2016
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.

Margot Robbie is an Australian actress. She first came to prominence for her role as Donna Freedman on the soap opera Neighbours and has appeared in films such as About Time (2013) and The Wolf of Wall Street (2013).

I really do like this name. It sounds traditional, respectable, and unique.
coolcatevan9  7/27/2014
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.

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.

It looks too much like 'maggot'. ;/

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

In Germany Margot is pronounced similar to the Swedish; MAR-gawt.
rainbow_Maya  7/14/2009
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.
margs66  12/13/2008
I really like his name - maybe because it's mine. However, most people when reading my name out loud mispronounce it as mar-GOTT.

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

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.
