"Peg" is an awesome song by Steely Dan! So I guess the famous bearer is the woman being sung about. ;)

I get why this name comes from Margaret. Peg rhymes with Meg, and Meg is a short form of Margaret.

Peg Entwistle (1908-1932) was an actress who famously committed suicide by jumping off the Hollywood sign (then Hollywoodland).

I've heard of families calling their daughters Peg (for Margaret), because it was tradition to name girls after their mothers. Therefore there would be several Margarets in one family- and several nicknames to differentiate- Maggie, Meg, Peg, Peggy. Since we don't pass on names like that any more, Peg sounds a little odd and outdated.

Surprised nobody has put about the shortened form of 'Pegan'. I can see why some people wouldn't like it but I find it very classy and I wonder why people don't name their daughters this more. Most people called Peg in the early 20th century were actually called Pegan.

Even if it's outdated, I like this name. I find it very original.
