I have been looking at various sites and so far found that it is a German name, but used mostly in English speaking areas. It is a form of Margaret. Was a character name in Faust around the late 1700's or early 1800's.
What I can't find out is the actual time line for the use of this name, when it came about etc...
My main question is would it have been in use in the 1600's? Not even just in America, but in any other country?
Does anyone know of a documented person in history with this name? 1600's or earlier? Preferably before 1668.
