I'm not exactly sure how this could be a point of contention. The point of the two Osgoods was to be completely indistinguishable from the other. So why would one of them take on a name that was different from the original? It would kind of defeat the entire purpose. Although I think logic dictates that this is obviously her human name, if you ''really'' feel you need to confirm it, her first name might be said at some point in the ''UNIT: Extinction'' audio drama.

As for how we should handle the three separate Osgood characters, I personally think the best thing to do would be to treat this matter from an in-universe perspective. From each Osgood's point-of-view, both of them are the real thing, so why not have the article reflect this attitude and have both characters share the same article? That way would could truly represent the spirit of these two characters and also save ourselves a huge headache by trying to determine how to make another article for another character who may or may not be the same character at various different points in the show.
