From the English vocabulary word for the flower, ultimately derived from Anglo-Saxon dægeseáge meaning 'eye of day', i.e. 'sun', which it resembles [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

Sometimes it is used as a punning pet form of Margarita and its variant forms, by association with French Marguerite, which is both a French form of the name and a French word for the flower [4] [5] [6]
