My name is Margaret but I go by Maggie. Me and my husband really want to name our daughter Magnolia. But my mom doesn't like it because she thinks everyone will just call her Maggie. But I don't see a problem with that. Plus we like the nickname Nolie.
Re: Grandma doesn't like the name
So what if your daughter ends up going by Maggie then that's what she goes by. Maybe for family you have additional identifiers to differntiate between you (like Momma Maggie and Little Maggie) if it's really that big of a problem.
My older sister and I are a year and a half apart in age and would often have the same teachers in school. Our PE teacher in 7th/8th grade would call my sister Big (last name) and me Little (last name) even though we have completely different first names.
