Help Decide on a Name?

I'm getting a male English Golden Retriever puppy sometime next year or at the end of this year and I can't decide on the name. The two names I'm stuck between are: Calvin and Oliver.

If you combined those two nicknames and called him "Collie" you could really confuse everybody.......
