Please remember as you add names to make sure there are at least a few ways to link *out* of the name. If you find an F12 name that has something in common with F11, but no other significance, it probably won't make a good name. For instance, I see a great name, "Hippocoon," on the list already, which has no other significance I can find beyond its connection with F11 (also a Spartan king). That means we can't easily link *from* Hippocoon to something else for F13, and this name will likely be cut from the list. The Board and I are going to have to go through these names manually, so we do ask that you give us a hand in advance by thinking through *each* of your name suggestions carefully, according to all the guidelines on the wiki page.
