    Call sign?

    Being "that guy" aside, I always used "Username"

    If you want to see if a camelCase might seem awkward, snake_case it and check. user_name looks like a different concept from username, so the capital N is probably a bad idea :)

    One of the problems with _ in names is when you write them down, and someone tries to figure out what you wrote, as such they can get translated to:

    user - name

    @Nanos What. Underscore universally means a space.

    username

    But only if you have no other entries like:
    lastName
    firstName
    ... etc ...
    then it's userName

    @M1sf3t honestly, I avoid variable names where the word occurs in grammatical style guides ! It’s too much drama in the PR when the grammar police decide to review me.

    “According to the style guides of “Get it Write”, IEEE, Webopedia, and the Associated Press, as well as the Merriam-Webster dictionary and the New Oxford American Dictionary, the proper spelling is e-mail. Some cite email as a possible alternative spelling.” http://tony.abou-assaleh.net/misc/...

    @Nanos depends on the language. If this was a C# public property, then it should be Pascal case.

    I thought you always avoided the use of - in names because it could also be taken as a minus sign and introduce bugs.

    @Nanos Unicode U+FE58 can get around that!

    Not all systems use Unicode..

    Some of us have to support legacy systems written 35+ years ago !

    Yes still in use today. :-)

    Somewhat amusingly, imagine what devRant will look like in 20 years time, that's what this particular system was like 35 years ago !

    I just wish they would fix the 35 year old bugs..

    One of the reasons I'm doing a kinda clone, then at least my code won't have those bugs !

    @Nanos Totally understand... I used to support some old Telco mainframe apps written with COBOL! I don’t miss those days. Anymore “legacy” is older than 18 months, right ?

    I thought 18 months was the magic time when a product was mature enough to be at least functional and not fall over all the time..

    Or is that just Window OS's..
