    1. Easy to pronounce.
    2. Easy to spell.
    3. Something I love and adore, over just liking.
    4. No teasing potential.
    5. Has to sound well with he or she's siblings.
    6. Flows with our last name.
    7. Will age well.
    8. Not overly common, if it is and has multiple nicknames, try them. I have a super common name for my age and I always hated you couldn't call me anything but Erin.
    9. Try and not have the initials match, if it happens with two of them it is fine.
    10. Make sure Jason loves the name as much as me and has input too.

    1. Obvious to spell and pronounce (no popular variations)
    2. Must contain a "hope". By which I mean, I want there to be something about the name that says your parents hope you will grow up to _______. Whether that is " be like a certain person" "live up to a meaning" "conduct yourself in such a way that you bring even greater honor to that name".

    1. No creative spellings.
    2. Something that makes me feel light inside.
    3. A name which has some kind of significance to it, even if it's not a family name (which a lot of my names are in some capacity) the name must be meaningful.
    4. Will age well.
    5. Classic
    6. The name must have a saint in it somewhere, what can I say I'm Catholic
