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

First I start with something like this:

const aaaaaaaaa = () => /* my code here */

Then after figure out what the thing does, I change the name to match.

Then after I check the code into source control and push it up to the repo, I change the name one last time.

It's also possible that later, I will change the name once more when a co-worker complains that my naming isn't correct for the thing.

Naming things is hard.
