Pippa Margo...is this an issue?!

Ok, so I love the names [name]Pippa[/name] and [name]Margo[/name], and [name]Margo[/name] has meaning to me, so I randomly put them together and [name]LOVE[/name] it! However I typed it into Google to see if anything came up and there were a ton of articles about how [name]Pippa[/name] Middleton’s pilates teacher (or something like that) is named [name]Margot[/name]. Is this an issue?! I’m sure I’m way overthinking this…but it’s still definitely something I think about about!

Also, I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on this combo. Not sure if I’d use the spelling [name]Margo[/name] or [name]Margot[/name], but I’m leaning towards [name]Margo[/name], and I’m not a fan of any other spellings.

No I wouldn’t even worry about it, its a beautiful name!! If there was a porn start with the same name or a historical figure of course, but that is a very long chain to be worried about, I’m sure no one will make the connection, certainly without researching it!

Its very pretty!! :slight_smile:

I don’t think many people are going to hear [name]Pippa[/name] [name]Margo[/name] and think, “Oh, like the Middleton girl’s pilates teacher!”

It’s a lovely name.

I like it and don’t think that’s an issue. I agree on the [name]Margo[/name] spelling. As a kid, when I read Diary of [name]Anne[/name] [name]Frank[/name], every time I read her sister [name]Margot[/name]'s name,I thought [name]Mar[/name]-got, with the t sound at the end. Haha. I learned the right way to print but still to this day, every time see it I think [name]Mar[/name]-got.

Haha, I over-analyze the same way googling names…I dont think you have anything to worry about though!

If it was something like [name]Pippa[/name] [name]Kate[/name] where people would immediately be like “Yeah, you really like those Middletons…” I’d be concerned. This, no one knows her pilates teachers name and soon enough she’ll probably have a brand new teacher anyway. :wink:

[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Margo[/name] is adorable. I slightly prefer the [name]Margot[/name] spelling, just looks complete to me, but both versions are lovely.

I don’t think it’s an issue at all. I prefer the [name]Margot[/name] spelling.

That was the right way :smiley: [name]Anne[/name] and [name]Margot[/name] [name]Frank[/name] were dutch, since the [name]German[/name] pronunciation is “[name]Mar[/name]-got” I’m pretty sure the dutch is as well. [name]Margo[/name] would be the French I think.

I doubt anyone but hard-core [name]Pippa[/name] Middleton fans will actually make that connection. I think if [name]Margo[/name] has personal significance then you should use it, and I think [name]Pippa[/name] is such a happy and cheerful name.

Hmm…not sure about this. [name]Margot[/name] is definitely French (T’s are silent on the ends of French words). While I was in Switzerland, it was really obvious that anyone in the area of [name]France[/name]-Switzerland-Germany kind of used combos of both languages. So, for example, it wouldn’t be hard to find a [name]Gretchen[/name] in eastern [name]France[/name] or an [name]Isabelle[/name] in Eastern Germany. There is a lot of intermingling between the languages there. I find it difficult to believe that anyone pronounces [name]Margot[/name] [name]Mar[/name]-got. They might not honor the accept over the o, but I wouldn’t think they’d just completely ignore the original pronunciation. I could be wrong though!

Well if you talk to someone who doesn’t know French, like me, I see [name]Margot[/name] and say [name]Mar[/name]-gott, while [name]Margo[/name] is more obvious to me as being mar-go

I think it’s fine, it’s such an obscure reference, I doubt anyone will know unless they are stalking [name]Pippa[/name]. [name]Pippa[/name]'s real name is also [name]Phillipa[/name].

Also in every language, a name has different pn, it doesn’t make it wrong, it’s just the language.

I don’t think it would be an issue, my issue would be [name]Pippa[/name] sounding a tad on the juvenile side and prefer a full name. [name]Pippa[/name] [name]Margo[/name] itself just sounds very English / Quirky to me, I wouldn’t associate it with anybody.

[name]Philippa[/name] [name]Margo[/name] as the full name sounds better.
Also,[name]Margot[/name] is prn [name]Margo[/name] throughout Europe. But if you’re not in Europe dropping the t would save you a lot of bother in the US I think.

You pronounce [name]Margot[/name] as [name]Margo[/name]…never heard it with a T on the end! [name]Even[/name] in Dutch! :slight_smile:

I also prefer [name]Philippa[/name] [name]Margo[/name]…nn [name]Pippa[/name]. But I am not a big fan of [name]Pippa[/name].

Good luck!

I don’t think the connecton to the Middletons matters at all, as people have said its not really something in common knowledge (Although I would stear clear of [name]Kate[/name], [name]Katherine[/name] and [name]Charlotte[/name] for [name]Philippa[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] middle names).

Also I do prefer [name]Philippa[/name] [name]Margo[/name] nn [name]Pippa[/name].

Although I would stay away from [name]Pippa[/name] [name]Kate[/name] or [name]Pippa[/name] [name]Catherine[/name], the connection between [name]Pippa[/name] and [name]Margo[/name]/[name]Margot[/name] is [name]WAY[/name] too obscure for people to figure out. And if anyone is that big of a [name]Pippa[/name] Middleton fan that they can make the connection, you’re not the one with the problem. :wink:

As for [name]Margo[/name] vs [name]Margot[/name], while I personally prefer [name]Margot[/name], I speak French fairly well and therefore mar-gott actually never occurred to me until now. I like them both. That said, I like [name]Philippa[/name] nn [name]Pippa[/name] better as a fn.

[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Margo[/name] is delightful!


PS I think [name]Pippa[/name] is a gorgeous first name much more today and full of life than the sedate [name]Phillipa[/name] and why give the child the name [name]Phillipa[/name] and call her [name]Pippa[/name] forever?
