Importing Target Process features as Jira Epics

I may be thinking of this the wrong way, but my thought was to import our 'Features' into Epics in Jira. I have extracted the features I want to import and have most of the field mappings done. However, have a bit of a snag.

If I import the 'Name' field as the Epic Name, that satisfies the condition for creating an Epic. But I don't have a mapping for the required 'Summary' field. I don't know what I can map into the Summary that would make sense. I am thinking what I really want is my imported 'Name' to map to botht the Epic name and the Summary.

Any ideas/pointers would be appreciated.

Maybe just use the same name as the "Epic Name" as the summary?

That was my thought, wondering if there is a way to do this in the import process, or if I shoudl just duplicate the column in the CSV.
