    I really like Clara Marguerite!!!

    I personally dislike Penelope and Victoria.

    I like Helena - how are you pronouncing Helena? He - LAY - na or HELL-en-ah?

    I do like Augusta - its on my list for middles!

    I think all your names are nice. I have a cousin who is named Victoria and she has never gone by vicky. Helena margaret is my favorite although I may be biased. I personally say he-len-a, there are three ways of saying Helena.

    My only concern with Helena is pronunciation, as some of you have suggested. I like HELL-en-ah or hel-LEN-ah, but not He-LAY-na. I guess there's no way to avoid the pronunciation problems.

    Upshot of Augusta: it only has one pronunciation, and it's not likely to be misspelled.

    Honestly, I love all your choices! Helena and Victoria are my favourites. I don't think Vicky is inevitable; it's a bit of a dated nickname. Most of the younger Victorias I've known go by Tori or their full name.

    Possible combos:
    Helena Beatrice
    Helena Vivienne
    Augusta Claire
    Augusta Elizabeth
    Augusta Juliet
    Augusta Magdalene
    Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Marilla ~ Sarah
    Paul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel
