things i've considered in picking my name:
does it sound nice, does it flow well with my surname and potential middle names, do the initials look okay, does it connect in any way to my birth name, can i see myself being called it on a regular basis, do i like its meaning(s), does it relate back to my family history and origin in any way, what history/pop culture connections does it have, do i know anyone else with the name, is it too common or too rare, can it be explained away in situations where i'm not ready to come out to everyone i'm with, is it easily misspelled/mispronounced, does it adequately reflect my gender identity in its entirety
things my parents considered in picking my birth name:

You don't really believe all that stuff do you?
Definitely Jon! We are linked with our wolves! It's so much more than a human/animal bond - It runs deep. I mean, since getting Nymeria back I can sense when she wants to hunt and feel the need to let off a bit of steam myself. Whenever I'm feeling low, she mopes about with me before I even realise how sad I am, and when I'm hungry she acts like she could devour a whole stag herself! She likes who I like, she growls at people I hate...
I dunno...I guess it's similar with me and Gho-

JOOOOON!!!! GHOST IS HUMPING MY LEG AGAIN!!!!
The night was windless, the snow drifting straight down out of a cold black sky, yet the leaves of the heart tree were rustling his name. “Theon,” they seemed to whisper, “Theon.”
The old gods, he thought. They know me. They know my name. I was Theon of House Greyjoy. I was a ward of Eddard Stark, a friend and brother to his children. “Please.” He fell to his knees. “A sword, that’s all I ask. Let me die as Theon, not as Reek.” Tears trickled down his cheeks, impossibly warm. “I was ironborn. A son … a son of Pyke, of the islands.”
