Maggie vs. Molly

We are expecting a little girl in April. We have decided to name her after my mom whose name is Mary. We will be using a variation of Mary but can't decide which name we like more. Please vote for either Maggie or Molly. We are not looking for any other name suggestions. Thank you!

Maggie is not a variation of Mary in any way.

I actually knew sisters in high school, both named Mary but one went by Molly and the other Maggie. I prefer Molly over Maggie

Maggie is a nickname of Margaret. Margaret is in the Mary family of names. Thus Maggie is indeed a variation of Mary.

I've never heard of Maggie as a nickname of Mary. Mary and Margaret have different meanings.
Nicknames that I know of for Mary are: Mamie, Molly, and Polly.
There are other variations of Mary though, like: Mara, Maria, Marie, Mariah, Maura, Moira, Miriam etc.

Everyone chill. This is her way of honoring Mary. Leave it.

I picked Molly. I felt Maggie would seem a little off on a girl unless it was a nickname for Margaret.
