Other Origin(s):French, Greek
Margaux is a feminine given name with Swiss roots deriving from French, one of Switzerland’s four official languages. Coming from the Greek name Margaret, the title means "pearl" and is a variant of the better-known Margo and Margot that has caught on in Switzerland. Ernest Hemingway's daughter, Margaux, is believed to have popularized the moniker's unique spelling, swapping out her -ot suffix for -aux in 1988. Wine connoisseurs might correctly associate the spelling to the ritzy Chateau Margaux, a French Bordeaux created in a village bearing the namesake. Between pearls, fine literature, and wine, a name like this will help baby aspire for the finer things in life.
