Excuse me, this question may belong on Words-L but I got to wondering the
other day how did the nickname Peggy get associated with Margaret?
Please feel free to answer privately and not waste ADS-L bandwidth if this is
too obvious a question.

i've always wondered this too (and my 3rd name is margaret, so i have
a stake in it) so i hope someone will reply to the list.
i've always assumed margaret -- meg -- peg (but why would that
last step be taken?)
