Yes, correct - all diminutives of Margaret except for Betty (Elizabeth) although I suspect Pearl and probably Daisy nowadays are more common as names in their own right.
Over to you, David

Well done Nick - absolute carnage on your first bowl!

1 A teen idol of the 50s and 60s (film and music)?
2 A place to store valuables?
3 Linus
4 (Great) Paul
5 Leo
6 Martin (my middle name to follw Lisa's last post)
7 Rowan
8 Julius (Caesar) though Hadrian kinda fills the bill
9 Sylvester
10 US university city nicknamed the "emerald city"?

Yep they are all regnal names of Popes except Rowan who does a different gig so to speak. That would be an ecumenical matter as Father Ted might say!

Just 1, 2 and 10 to go

Thinking of a Peterman - is a Peter a safe?

Indeed it is Lisa - a safe which you've successfully cracked. Whoever solves clue 10 will take the baton.
