re: What are your personal stories/examples of "naming things"? VIEW POST


Worst, and yet, somehow best, name ever, I gave to a Javascript component I wrote as a lightweight version of jQuery UI Dialog. I gave the component the name TRELOMS, which stood for "Trivago EierLegende Overlay MilchSau". Stuck around for years, even became part of the vocabulary on non-tech people... :D Sometimes a humorously descriptive name can be perfect, internally the component named itself "overlay engine", which is more accurate, but just... boring :D
