Discussion on: Do you have a process for naming things?

It really depends on what you're doing.

Consistency, establish conventions with your team, and following mantra's of the specific language can be really helpful guidelines.

Really though... not everyone is going to like your naming and way too much time is wasted arguing if it's the "right" name. I'm in the "close enough" club because I just want to get things done. I do appreciate some sanity to it though, so set some rules with your team and document what you're doing and build away.
