Name for puppy

I just adopted a basset/boston mix yesterday. He's 4 months old and I'm having some trouble choosing a name. I've narrowed it down to 4 names, though.

Harvey
Milo
Linus
Rory

I've asked my parents and a couple of friends and Milo is the name that has been mentioned by each of them. I like it, but I'm also partial to Rory because I'm a huge fan of Doctor Who.

Here's a picture of him:

I like Linus. He has a little bit of a beagle look so that reminds me of Snoopy and Linus is in the Peanuts cartoon.

I really like Milo and Rory. However when I look at him he seems like a Milo to me

My nickname from my Dad growing up was Linegrass - from Linus, because I carried a blanket. The nickname stuck but the blanket carrying didn't. Because of this I am partial to Linus too.

His name is Linus! Thanks for your input, it did help me make a decision. I've had him for 2 days and I already love this little guy so much!

I have always though Linus would be a great name for a dog, and it is also one that is not heard very often.
