SharePoint 2010 Service Accounts - Necessary Permissions and Naming Convention Best Practices

There are lot of naming conventions/patterns in naming service accounts for SharePoint. Here is mine:

Service Accounts Naming Pattern - Best Practice:
svc + environment (Such as Dev, Test, Prod) +  SP + account name (keep the service account names to less than 20 characters)
