Spielberg, Lucas and Kasdan Brainstorming for "Raiders of the Lost Ark"

At one point, hours into the conversation, Kasdan asks, “Do you have a name for this person?”

Lucas: I do.

Spielberg: I hate this, but go ahead.

Lucas: Indiana Smith.

Lucas: It has to be unique. It’s a character. Very Americana. Square. He was born in Indiana.

Kasdan: What does she call him, Indy?

Lucas: That’s what I was thinking. Or Jones.
