    Helena Marguerite is a much more balanced and mellifluous name. You need that vowel sound at the end (the -a) to lilt into Marguerite. Also, Josephine and Marguerite have nearly identical meters, with the last syllable stressed, so the name sounds repetitive and sing-songy.

    he-LAY-na mar-gue-RITE nicely separates the stress and has a good balance between vowel & consonant sounds

    jo-se-PHINE mar-gue-RITE is repetitive and has identical phonetic stcutures: open-open-closed syllable, starts & ends with consonants, etc.

    While I prefer Josephine overall, I think it's way too much name with Marguerite in the middle. I think they would make a great sibset though....

    So Helena Marguerite gets my vote for flow!
