Maisie

Maisie (f) Originally a pet form of Margaret. Since
Daisy also came to be used as a nickname for Margaret it is tempting to see Maisie as a blend of Margaret and Daisy. However, Maisie was in very early use and its form has probably more to do with the Gaelic Marsail, ‘Margery.’ Mysie was another form of the name. As a name in its own right, Maisie has never been particularly fashionable in any English-speaking country, though its use increased for a time circa 1925.
