Why are these girl names unpopular nowadays ?

Margaret sounds very old-fashioned although people still use the name. Gretchen and Olga have never been very popular and sound very Germanic and Russian, respectively. Petunia was the name of a cartoon pig years ago and is still associated with farmyard animals. Pantrisha and Manhelga are names that you have just made up.

They have just fallen out of favor. People follow trends and those aren't trending.

In over 70 years in Britain and Australia I have never come across Pantricia and Manhelga - the latter feels Swedish. My British spell checker does not recognise either of those two. I have always known Patricia.
In the 1950s in Britain there was a popular song which went: "I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch, and nobody looks at me."
And just think of 'man-hell-gah'.

Helga... Patricia.... Many of those names just don't sound great, especially a number of German female names:
Annegret, Dietlinde, Dagmar, Gerlinde, Gudrun, Elfriede, Barbel, Bernadette, Brunhild, Helmine, Hedwig, Fridegunde, Felizitas, Fanny, Frauke, Adelheid, Agnes, Hermine, Hildegard, Hulda, Ingeborg, Jutta, Manuela, Luzie, Kunigunde, Meta, Ottilie, Pia, Ricarda, Rolanda, Scheherezade, Ulrike, Traute, Wilhelmina, Waldtraud, Siglinde.... not that all German female names are unattractive
