How to pick a registered name

We just brought home our new baby girl... Mia. She is almost 7 weeks and so sweet. The breeder has given me the paperwork to register Mia. I have no clue what I am doing and not sure how I select the registration name. Any suggestions? Here's some info that may help?
Breeder: Hitchcock
Sire: HitchocksJazzNJackDaniels
Dam: Hitchcock's Daisy Mae

Does the breeders kennel name have to be in her registered name, and was there a theme for the litter? If so you start with the kennel name, and find something that correlates to the theme.

If you don't have to use the kennel name and there was no theme, then it's wide open and you can pick anything you want.

I usually have some rough things in mind before bringing a puppy home.... and then like the actual name we kinda change our mind ten-million times based on what "matches" the dog.

Bertie's our first pup in a long time that wasn't named after a song. Danny and Jacks were songs.
