Margaret Atwood was one of the first Margarets I remember hearing about when I was a child, and I felt linked to her because of this.

Marge, Marg, Maggie, Peggy, and even Gretchen, Greta, and Meg come from Margaret. I go by the whole thing, which in my experience is unusual. There are a lot of hidden Margarets. I started a Margarets Pinterest board for fun, and have discovered many interesting women, who all share this name. Check it out!
