Meaning:Pearl
Margaux is a feminine given name deriving from French origin. The title means "pearl" and is a variant of the better known "Margo" and "Margot". 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.
