Marguerite Laugier (née Lhomme) (12 September 1896 – 10 June 1976) was a French astronomer active at the Nice Observatory from the 1930s to the 1950s. Contemporary astronomical articles refer to her as "Madame Laugier".[citation needed]

She discovered a number of asteroids. The asteroid 1597 Laugier is named for her.[1]

Note: She is not to be confused with a male "M. Laugier" in 19th century literature, where the M. stands for "Monsieur". This refers to Paul Auguste Ernest Laugier (1812–1872).
