Margie's design is multifaceted. In a symbolic sense, a white elephant represents just rule and natural purity within central Asian countries like India, Burma, and Thailand. Margie closely resembles the mythical white elephant Airavata. In a metaphorical sense, a "white elephant" is an expensive possession whose cost of upkeep exceeds its usefulness. The floral yellow-and-red ornamentation on her head resembles a nettipattam, a decorative elephant caparison that covers the front of the animal's forehead. Her favorite saying in the Japanese releases suggests she may be partially based on bihaku, a skin-whitening cosmetic movement in Japan.
Her initial phrase – "tootie" – is a term of endearment for those shorter than oneself. It potentially derives from Margie's large size and "toot", which is sometimes used as an onomatopoeia for the sound of a trumpeting elephant and a literal brass trumpet. Her initial phrase in the Japanese releases, シャララ, represents singing. It may have basis in "Sha-la-la", the second song on the 1992 album エレファントカシマシ5 by the Japanese rock band Elephant Kashimashi.
Her favorite saying in English releases – "keep your feet on the ground" – is an American idiom about the importance in keeping oneself grounded, practical, and sensable even after profound accomplishment. Her favorite saying in the Japanese releases – 色の白いは七難隠す – is a proverb about how a fair skin can mask or compensate for having less attractive traits.
Margie is a common English name and is usually short for "Margaret". This name comes from the Greek word for pearl, "margarítēs".
