I really, really like Rowena June Arianrhod and Rosamund Eve Arianrhod. I'm leaning toward Rosamund because Ulysses, Bishop, Winifred, and Rosamund as siblings is simply magical. The Winifred/Rowena thing is sticking out to me too. While I like Arianrhod as a first name in theory, it just feels far too unusual next to Ulysses, Bishop, and Winifred.♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Silas ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Freeman ◊ Dean ◊ Tobias ◊ Jasper

Rowena June Arianrhod - I was loving this until pp mentioned Winifred and Rowena could both be Winnies and now I can't un-see it. Does Winifred have a nn? Since you'd be calling Rowena, Roo, I don't think it matters. Plus the -enna pronunciation (which is beautiful) reduces the Winnie-ness. I still think this is a beautiful and meaningful combo.
Rowena June Ariadne - not as into Ariadne
Rowena June Arianne - seems a little softer but is lovely
Rosamund Eve Arianrhod - lovely, lovely. Can definitely still do Roo. I would choose this if Rowena seems too close to Winifred.
Gwendolen Aria June - Gwendolen seems too similar to Winifred to me.
Arianrhod Rosalia June (possible nn Ari?) - do not care for Arianrhod as a first name
Ruxandra Arianrhod June - not for me
Arianrhod Rowena June - not for me

My favorite combo would be Rowena June Arianne. I love June the most out of any of your choices, because it has such a great connection and importance to her addition to your family. Plus that "oo" sound paired with any R first name guarantees you a little Roo. I personally just love the name Rowena which is why I voted for this combo. Rosamund, Rosalind, ______ June Arianne work just as well though. I think you should go with whichever one you prefer saying when you one day call her something other than Roo. Roo is simply adorable, and I think it can work with any of your R names.
I think Arianne is your best bet in keeping a similarity to her original name. At some point in her life that may become very important to her, though I'm sure she will appreciate the slight pc chance you've made to it. (Arianrhod is nice in theory, but it is still quite a bit of name to bestow on someone and I think for the sake of honoring her given name it deviates a bit too far.) Choose a first name you love for her, and keep the middles simply for meaning? Just my opinion. Good luck to you! =]Dominic James~ (Felicity : Julia : Rowena : Gabriel : Jude)
