EDIT: I removed the to me from the sentence.

As a programmer by trade, I believe I can provide some insight here. A Function already passes a value in a Return Statement. As such, you don't need the "and pass" implied in the function name. Instead you need a name, as in a noun. Consider the following:
Private Function ValidateAge(AgeToCheck As Integer) As Boolean Select Case AgeToCheck Case >= 21 MsgBox("This Person can Drink or Smoke in the US") Return True Case > 18 And <=21 MsgBox("This Person can vote in the US") Return True Case < 16 MsgBox("This Person is legally unable to vote, smoke, or drink.") Return False Else Return False End Case End Function
If I only called this function Validate or Check, as in
Function Validate or
Function Check most programers would have to read code to see what the Function was doing, because the Function is only named with a verb. As common practice, most seasoned programmers name functions with a verb plus a noun. Common examples I've seen:
The word you are looking for is validate. It means either or both (a) to check whether something is valid and (b) to make or declare something to be valid.
