Best practices for icons in design system

I am creating our design system and when it comes to icons I want to create something smooth which helps quickly and efficiently swap between icons but the main issue is that I have icons with 2 properties max while others can extend to 5.
It seems that having the same number of properties for icons is the best way to go, my only option so far is limit the properties to one but in that case I will have to rename arrows for instance 4 times for the different directions instead of just choosing directions from dropdown.
Anyone has a method of doing this practically?
Thanks in advance
