I would go with Remington, and Remi for short
I had a lab named Lakota, one named Santana
Your Daughter is wise. "Olive" is a great name for a black lab! Unique so if you are in the field, others will not confuse her name with other dogs, and less distracting for Olive too!
thats funny, my daughter named a black PitBull Terrier we had Olive
I've owned and named one or two dogs over the years. I've found that they will name themselves if you pay attention to them. I will definitely agree that working field dogs need short easy to say names that carry well. I currently have 4 Springers. The old man, Onee was named because he was first born. But the AKC won't let you use numbers for names and all names must be at least 4 letters long. The old female is Ring, because of the band of color on the base of her tail. My two working dogs are Eightball, named by one of my daughters. And he is an eightball. His brother Muddy, could find mud in the middle of a desert.
So watch you new pup, he will tell you what his name should be.
If you think you understand what is going on, you haven't been paying attention.
I've had a few good Labs, but only one Female.
I called her Tater.
I actually had a dog named "Dog" once... It was good enough for me.
But this I know with all my heart,
HIS wounds have paid my ransom.

Ollie ought to be a great dog.
