Naming convention

A naming convention is a convention (generally agreed scheme) for naming things. Conventions differ in their intents, which may include to:

  • Allow useful information to be deduced from the names based on regularities. For instance, in Manhattan, streets are consecutively numbered; with east–west streets called "Streets" and north–south streets called "Avenues".
  • Show relationships, and in most personal naming conventions
  • Ensure that each name is unique for same scope
