Origin of first name:
Meaning of the name:
It is a diminutive of Marguerite, from the Greek margaritas, "the pearl".
Of course, we think of Queen Margot who married Henry of Navarre in 1572. But the Margaux form remains the most common. It is also this spelling that the great writer Hemingway chose for one of his granddaughters, in tribute to the grand cru of Médoc, Château-Margaux. This name is widespread since the Middle Ages, but did not register in the civil registry until the second half of the twentieth century.
The Margaux are celebrated on November 16th.
Its derivatives: Margerie, Margot, Marguerite, Marguerin, Megan, Meg.
