    Mar-ga-ret - middle syllable is the shortest. I love the nn Daisy, and I know it's an acceptable nn for Margaret, but I don't know why (I just googled it and I get it now!)

    I say it somewhere between Mar-grit and Mar-gret. I would only pronounce the second syllable if it was spelled Magarethe.
