Why would "maggie" be one of the most common account passwords?

Asked by ibstubro (18765points) May 19th, 2016

I “get” why most of the passwords on this list are common, but I’m at a loss to explain “maggie”.

A lot of people listening to old Rod Stewart songs.

Odd. Maggie hasn’t been in the top 100 for popular US girl names in the last 100 years.

@ibstubro Why do you question “maggie” but not “charlie”? Charlie is not that common a name either.

1) maggie is 6 letters
2) it is easily rememberable
3) Margaret is a Top 200 name, and peaked in 2000, so younger parents would use an easy variant of their daughter’s name.

Maggie is also a popular dog name:

She’s the sanest Simpson.

Yep, along the lines of @CWOTUS I say it’s most likely Simpsons related

Odd, aside from my great-aunt (who was born in 1913) I think I’ve only ever known one other person named Margaret.

@Darth_Algar My girlfriends name is Margaret (as was her mom’s and her grandmother’s) and my niece is named Margaret, and my ex and I were leaning towards it but my ex said it was “too Catholic”.

It is common amongst Irish.It has a lot of variants- Rita, Peg, Daisy, Meg.

I didn’t realize that Maggie was a zombie film in 2015.

Sheen, Rose and Hebdo have kept Charlie on the minds of many people, @zenvelo.

@zenvelo My mom wanted Shannon Elizabeth Lastname for my sister and the family was “against” it because it was too Irish Catholic.

I don’t know how influential it is, but there is also the song Maggie May by Rod Steward.
