I always heard that the name Margarita comes from the Greek word Margalithos : precious stone, precious Pearl.
(I studied in High School 6 years Greek-Latin Humanities)

In Israel you hear the name as : Margalitha or Margalith. Also in Greece you hear it with the L and not the R.

Pretty, but as a Harry Potter fan, I can't help but think of Rita Skeeter, and that's not a very positive association at all.

I always thought Rita was a very pretty name. There was a girl who lived across the street from me named Rita. We all thought she was so pretty and her name fit her. Then I went to middle school and met this big headed obnoxious girl named Rita. I was appalled that such a person could have such a pretty name.
