Maggie might have started life as a diminutive for Margaret, but has been an independently given name since the late 19th century. From the Greek margaritis meaning ‘pearl’, this name is just like a pearl: fine and full of class- just like your little girl! With its two staccato syllables exuding dynamism, this has been an enduring choice for baby girls.
