* MeaningfulName: Discussed in the opening chapters of ''Magic for Marigold'', when the Lesley clan goes over dozens of names, dismissing each one for some inappropriate meaning or unfortunate fellow namesake. Finally [[EnforcedTrope Enforced]] when the baby is threatened by a mortal illness, and they name her in honor of the doctor who saved her life - Marigold.

* ActuallyThatsMyAssistant: In Anne of Avonlea and a few other stories, characters will be expecting the visit of a famous authoress. The doorbell will ring, and they will meet a tall, elegant grand dame with a serene countenance... and a short, homely-looking bustling matron. They always think the grand dame is the writer, but...

* PutOnABus: One of the most often repeated phrases in Montgomery's works is probably, "He/she/they left for the Prairies." During the Edwardian and Victorian Eras, The Government of Canada ran a truly massive campaign to recruit people to settle the Prairie Provinces. The Prairies were far enough for characters to disappear into--and close enough (thanks to the CN Railroad) that [[TheBusCameBack they can come back at any time]].

* DryCrusader: A few of her stories and novels include characters who champion for Temperance and alcohol prohibition, a very timely subject. Only in "The Deacon's Painkiller," a short story about a particularly self-righteous minister, features the crusader getting karmically rebuked.

* HystericalWoman: Pat of Silver Bush, in her first book, is a nascent version of this trope. She loves very, very deeply and tends to take change badly -- it takes ''her entire family'' to calm her down after her father shaves his mustache. As a young girl she already gaining a reputation for going into hysterics; as she grows up she has slightly better control of her emotions, but is always considered odd.

* FeminineWomenCanCook: Almost all of her heroines have some talent at housekeeping and cooking. Justified, as they are all of a social class and era when cooking would be in a woman's basic skill set. A notable exception is the Story Girl from the novel of the same name and ''The Golden Road.''

* FeminineWomenCanCook: Almost all of her heroines have some talent at housekeeping and cooking. Justified, as they are all of a social class and era when cooking would be in a woman's basic skill set. Frequently, Montgomery puts cooking and domesticity in a positive, even powerful light. For heroines like Valancy and Pat, a woman in charge of her own house and her own kitchen is a woman independent and creative. A notable exception is the Story Girl from the novel of the same name and ''The Golden Road.''



* HaveAGayOldTime: Like any other writer of her era, Montgomery runs hard into this trope. She loved the use of the term "puss" to describe a cat, and pretty much every heroine of hers is called "queer" sooner or later -- meaning, unusual, defiant of social custom, difficult to define.

* ThePenance: In one short story, a high-living, flippant young woman is convinced that she caused the death of her sister, a respected and hard-working pillar of the community. The young woman trades her dancing for Bible reading, her pretty clothes for charitable work -- and the less she likes it, the more she does it.
