This appears to have been a common nickname for Margaret (at least in the US) in the 18th and 19th centuries, because I come across it a lot while doing genealogy research.

My little sister's name is Mattie Renee and I think it's soooooo cute! It is not a nickname or anything in her case, it is just her name. Although we call her Matilda or MattieLoo as nicknames. She is named after our Great-Great-Great Aunt Mattie. It suits her very well.

While it is not included on this site, Mattie means "Strong in battle", and is of German origin. Mattie isn't only a derivative, it is also a name that can stand on its own.

I like this as a nickname for Martin, but I'm afraid people will assume his name is Maddie, which I am not a fan of for girls.

If my future daughter, Mathilda, likes this, I will call her this name but spell it Matthie.

I liked this name, thinking it tomboyish but still sweet. Then I read Ethan Frome, was incredibly annoyed by the simplicity and naivite of Mattie's character, and will never look at that name as being anything other than plain.

I have a friend named Mattie. Everyone misspells it as Maddie. I think if I were her parents, I would have named her Maddie instead.

Mattie Silver is the name of a character in the book Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. She is Ethan's wife's cousin and he has feelings for her. [He's a bad person in my opinion and so is Mattie of course, in my opinion]

A famous bearer is Mattie Stepanek, a boy with muscular-dystrophy who amazingly lived to be 12 years old! He was extremely intelligent and started writing poetry at age 3. He was a peacemaker.
