Just a dumb thought because you have Marguerite as a potential mn and he loves Sophie.
I'd try to stay away from MS or SM combos. My middle names are Sophie M_____ and the S&M link has occurred to me and others numerous times (and for me it's just mn's so I can just drop both) - equally MS is maybe not a disease your child wants to be linked to.
If you think your hubby really likes names that are popular, I'd try to figure out why. It might be because he's slow to warm up to names and these are the ones he's most familiar with. In that case you can try to make your favorite name more mainstream to him. (Watch movies with positive characters by that name, songs, books, company names for furniture and clothing for ex while shopping "hey honey, what do you think of this Sarah picture frame?" etc). If he thinks a more mainstream name is important for a kid to fit in (some people do) then you can always break down the stats for him (hopefully they fall in your favor). If a name you like is on the rise you can explain what that means in contrast to choosing a name Jennifer-esque name.
Suggestions for what you both might like:
Willa/Willow/Wilhelmina (alright I'm fairly certain the last with be a no on his part but I got carried away)...if my husbands has no vote, then....
Endora & Lorelei / Dexter & Gideon
...we are newlyweds and not trying...yet...

The good news is that Sophia really is a beautiful name! It really deserves to be #1, it's got so much going for it -- classic, strong, feminine, beautiful sound....
A few other ideas of names that may have the same combination of beautiful feminine sound and classic roots. Plus I'm sticking with the soft sounds as that may be part of the attraction:
