Peggy: baby girl name meaning and popularity


Weirdly, a diminutive of the name Margaret, which means "pearl." But your beautiful daughter will reflect this meaning perfectly. Because when the world, like an oyster, is kind of gross - your little Peggy will be like the pearl amidst the grossness. How poetic.


Peg, Pegasaurus. Totally kidding about that last one.
