Firstly, I am in love with Henry Atlas - adorable!
Now onto Margot:
It's hard to comment on whether the rhyming is an issue with your surname without knowing exactly what that is. Personally I think Margot Pinot is too rhymey but if you think Margot works with your surname and your ok with the rhyming then go for it. I went through a stage of loving Violet but decided instantly we couldn't use it because our surname ends in -et and has a 'v' in too - but that's just me!
Some mn ideas you may like:
Margot Aura/Margot Aurora
Lastly, I prefer Margot to Margo (it seems more complete to me) I and would always spell it this way. I also love the spelling Margeaux
Congratulations and good luck!

Margot is one of my favorites! I prefer the -ot ending.
The sound of Margot Pinot does run together. When you say it quickly it is hard to distinguish the first name from the last name. If your name starts with an "F" this issue is even worse. I hear one word: "Margofino" which sounds like the name of a wine.
From your signature names I love the sound of Louisa "Finot" and Juliet "Finot". The -a ending and hard -t endings flow better. Also the three-syllable first names balance the shorter last name.
Louisa Page Finot
Louisa Calliope Finot
Louisa Poet Finot
Juliet Sunday Finot
Juliet Isis Finot
Juliet Demeter Finot
Anything appeal?Names I admire but can't necessarily use myself: Adela, Berthe, Beryl, Calliope, Celeste, Cleo, Grete, Guinevere, Isadora, Lilac, Lisette, Lucienne, Maelle, Marilla, Marisol, Melina, Ottoline, Pascale, Sibyl, Zara, Zinnia. Boys: Alasdair, Alcott, Anders, Augustine, Barnaby, Evander, Felix, Gilbert, Graham, Hugo, Julian, Kyrill, Leif, Lev, Malcolm, Maxfield, Morgan, Montgomery, Orion, Orlando, Rhys, Roman.

First of all, the English pronunciation of Margot is one of my most hated names so I'm a little biased.
I think "Margot Pinot" sounds almost cartoonish.
I'd definitely spell it Margot or Margaux. Margo looks incomplete as a formal name. However again, if you want to shy away from spelling complications I don't think a name with 3 acceptable spellings is the ideal choice.
Henry & Margot also reminds me of the infamous couple Henry of Navarre and Margot de France, but I'm a history/movie nerd. I doubt the association would be a problem.
Margot isn't as traditional/down-to-earth as Henry so I don't think you could pull off something too adventurous. Looking at your list, I'm thinking something like Margot Gemma, Margot Lucy, or Margot Catherine / Margot Kate.Arabella, Thibault, Sophia, Alfred, Eleanor, Rémi, Charlotte, Achille, Olivia, Clement, Elizabeth, Frederick, Maud, Benedict, Adèle.
