1.7 Use Consistent Naming Structures

Use consistent, self explanatory method names and parameter structures, explicit name for functions and follow naming conventions. For example, similar methods should have arguments in the same order. Developers who fail to use naming conventions may find that their code is difficult to understand, other developers find it difficult to integrate and so go elsewhere. Naming decisions are important, and there can be multilingual and cultural issues with understanding names and functionality so check your ideas with other developers.
