I love Alexander, but Alex is so boring and I can't stand Xander, Sasha is gorgeous though. I taught a lovely little boy who only went by Alexander and it was very refreshing.

I love Oscar. Oscar and Phoebe sound perfect together.

Oscar, think it goes well with Phoebe.

Good thing I had a girl, absolutely loved the name Oscar, but at the time that was the cat's name so a bit awks.

Alexander. You get a Greek theme there as Phoebe is also Greek in origin

Alexander! I'm another that never warmed to the name Oscar. They are both very common at our school, if that's something you want to consider.

I really like both names but there would be a dozen Oscars (and variations of the spelling) at our Primary school and the same for Alexander.  It may not bother you either.
