English

Proper noun

Meg

  1. A diminutive of the female given names Margaret and Megan.
    • 1818 John Keats: Meg Merrilies:
      Old Meg was brave as Margaret Queen,
      And tall as Amazon:
      An old red blanket cloak she wore,
      A chip-hat had she on.
    • 1985 E. L. Doctorow, World's Fair, Fawcett Crest 1986, ISBN 0449212378, page 208
      My mother thought Meg a sweet child, that's what she called her, a sweet child, although she was critical of her name.
      'What kind of name is that,' she said.
      'It's short for Margaret,' I said. 'But everyone calls her Meg.'
      'Well, that's no name for a girl, that's a scullery maid's name. I fault the mother.'
