A few suggestions.
When you pick your pup's name, pick something you don't mind shouting across the dog park. If your pup takes off after a flock of geese at the beach are you going to want to be shouting "ZOMBIE! GET BACK HERE!" I've seen many people shouting "dog!" and "C'mere boy!" because their 5 year old named the dog Scooby Doo, or Baby and now the dog won't respond to anything else.
Pick something that isn't going to come up in daily conversations. "Honey, do you want some bacon? Oh, not you puppy!"
And lastly... See what fits your pup! You may want to name her Odessa, but she turns out to be a real grump and Mavis would've been a better fit. Or you name her Gretchen and she turns out to be a real Rogue.
Of your names I like...
Good luck with your new pup!
