Oh Otter, I know I keep saying this, but this is my favorite one yet! The pictures you provided are unbelievably magical, especially 1, 3, and 7. I'm listening to the song on repeat as I look for suggestions and come up with combos ^_^
Euphrosyne - as I said way back when, this is my absolute favorite name to pair with Isolde. The frosty sound, the beautiful myth, and the connection to Aphrodite all make me extremely happy!
Snow - On the surface this is very literal, but I am reminded of all the Snow White stories, particularly the more empowered interpretations of her in Once Upon a Time and Snow White and the Huntress. There's also many variations on this name, including Lumi, Eira / Eirwen / Gwyneira (!!!), and Rima.
Lyra - Image number 7 always vividly reminds me of the HDM trilogy. Given Lyra's yearnings for the North and all of her time in places like Svalbard, the name has very wintry associations for me
Clara - The Nutcracker...perhaps more Christmassy than we're aiming for, but inexplicably linked in my mind to ballet, flowing white nightgowns, hot chocolate, and snowflakes
Alcyone - I'm on the fence about this one, but she is a wintry name so I'm suggesting her Alcyone is the kingfisher goddess, who nests every winter for two weeks, making the seas calm and peaceful during that time.
Demeter - seconding the Persephone idea, as this is a perfect winter-into-spring name. Also suggesting Demeter!
Beira - Celtic queen of winter who rules from Samhain to Beltane
Astrid - because Image number 3 smacks of Astrid from How to Train Your Dragon, just all grown-up and modelesque. I love that character though! And a name meaning "divinely beautiful" can't hurt to throw into the mix, with Aphrodite for a sister
Celeste / Celestia / Celestine - for the starshine
Bianca - Shakespearean connection to share with her sister, plus the snowy white image
Eirlys - if I remember correctly, this means snowdrop! What an adorable image, and perfect for an Imbolc baby.
Isolde Euphrosyne Winter
Isolde Gwyneira Celeste
Isolde Euphrosyne Eirlys - lots of E's, I know, but with the different vowel sounds I think it works
Isolde Clara Eurydice
Isolde Lyra Heleyne
Isolde Seren Alcyone
Isolde Lumi Elbereth
Isolde Eurydice Astrid - so icy and strong
Isolde Heleyne Persephone
Isolde Euphrosyne Olwen
Isolde Lucia Celeste
Isolde Persephone Snow
My favorite of your established combos is Isolde Olwen Eurydice, but I almost like it better as Isolde Eurydice Olwen, because I think having the "ol" sounds on either end balances things beautifully. I've bolded my favorites from my own suggestions.
