  • Notes 

    • Daisy and Peggy = Margaret. It seems like there should be a long explanation for Daisy, but it's as simple as this: the French word for "daisy" is "marguerite." As for Peggy? Well, Margaret was shortened to nicknames like Meg or Meggy, and the rhyming nickname trend turned Meggy into Peggy.
      Also nicknamed "the Quaker"-not known why (source Eugene McCann) [2]
