All beautiful! I can't pick one. My only addition to your list would be Hazel, my all time vintage short name favourite.

If i had to pick... Oscar and Matilda (Tilly) or Oscar and Rose.

I adore Harriet, it's one of my favourite names. Oscar and Matilda (Tilly) sound good together too.
I'm not a big fan of Audrey or Alice from personal associations.
I also know sibsets of Oscar and Adeline and Oscar and Penelope.

I love the name Violet, I've only met one Violet in my life, and she is a gorgeous 6 year old.

Ooh I also love PP's suggestion of Maeve, Nora and Juliet.

Can I add Hannah and I misread Pp's Daphne suggestion as Delphine and now I'm swooning over Oscar and Delphine nn Della.

I love Lucinda, but I am not sure you want to go with Oscar and Lucinda (fans of Peter Carey would pick that up)

Ivy
Lucille
Edith
Clarissa
Hazel
Cora
Iris
Edna
Elspeth
Elsie
Clover
Louisa

I really like Elspeth but I am not sure of the pairing of Oscar and Elspeth

Oscar and Lucinda..... not the best sib-set if anyone in the OP's acquaintance is likely to have read Peter Carey's book or seen the movie...

OP, I like Harriet best from your list.  Probably because the other names on your list are pretty common in my part of the world, as is Oscar, so I'd be looking for less common names.

Marigold
Pearl
Hazel
Ursula
Mabel
Henrietta
