As a child, I always loved the name Oakley...but I didn't know it was a real name, and being a child I didn't think I could use it...
Growing up, I decided it was definitely usable, and a couple years ago discovered it was in fact an actual name.
I would definitely pick Oakley! I love the sound of the name...with the nn Potential of Oak, Oakes, or Oakey.
The name means "meadow of Oak trees" which is quite nice..
Picture a meadow of trees in the winter...beautiful...just like the sound of the name Oakley Winter.
For a middle name you may want to go with something more classic, Perhaps, Oakley Charles, Oakley William, Oakley James, Oakley David, Oakley James, Oakley Grant?
However, another nature themed name would also sound lovely...Oakley Hawthorn? Oakley Bramble? Oakley Summit? Oakley Asher? Oakley Wilder? Oakley Hawk?
I also like the sound of Oakley Thatcher, Oakley Thayer, Oakley Leviticus?
Also, I think of it as a name immediately, then trees, Oakley sunglasses, and Annie Oakley..

So she doesn't want Oisin to be pronounced O-sheen? It kind of sounds like Ocean Winter? I dunno about that.
Oakley is such a cute name. Oakley Winter sounds cute too!
I really don't like Oxford. Very macho.
Other O names:
Odysseus (which if she likes Ulysses, that's not too far of a stretch)
Ollin / Ollyn (like Collin)
To be honest you could find a lot of names and drop the first letter and get an O name. You can even put an O in front of most names and it works. Or replace names that start with vowels with O. (Like Collyn to Ollyn, Silas to Osilas, or Asher to Osher.)
I think Oscar (champion), Oliver (peace, elven), Owen (young warrior, well-born), Osias (salvation), or Oran (pale little green one) sound great with Winter.
Osias is close to Oisin, and actually sounds better with Winter.
Osias Winter or Oliver Winter are my votes.

Whilst I do think Oisin is a very nice name... I just wanted to throw out this association honestly.
As a lover of chinese food, Oisin reminds me alot of Hoisin (sauce)... I don't think I can get over the association and if it is just me then fine
** I figured if I thought of it someone else might and it's better to hear it now than laterI like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.

I don't really case for any of her O-names. Oakley feels trendy to me, and Oakley Winter does sound like a candle scent. Oisin Winter sounds too close to Ocean Winter, which also sounds like a candle or maybe a "nature sounds" cd. Oxford is just plain unattractive as a first name, brings to mind hipster shoes for me. I also own a candle called simply "Oxford" which smells really great, so i can see Oxford Winter being candle-y as well.
I really like Osias or Oswald for her. Both flow with Winter. Oswin, my favorite O-name won't work for her, but she could use it as a nickname by taking the Os of one name and adding the Win of Winter. That might be kind of cute to have an Osias Winter or Oswald Winter and nickname him Oswin.I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.
My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.
