What should I name my how-to or pattern?

When considering a name for your how-to or pattern, try to be clear instead of clever. As tempting as it might be to mention the name of the place or person who inspired your pattern, the more detailed and straightforward you are, the easier it will be for other people to find it. However, if the name has already been taken our system will keep you from adding it. In that case you'll need to be creative (but not so much that no one will be able to find it).
