Well, give a name and check the following things while keeping the context in mind:

  1. Is it unambiguous?
  2. Does it reflect the intent and not the implementation?
  3. Is every word necessary?
  4. Is it correctly spelled?
  5. Is it likely to be unique within its scope? (Python module, CSS, etc)
