    I have the opposite problem! As a multilingual/musician/creative type I can name things all the live long day. The problem is that my names annoy the other developers 😂

    @SnowyLoli I pick names with meanings for what I'm doing. Like a cleanup process will be called concierge, a monitoring process will be called watchdog or pitbull. Some of the process automation scripts are called Automaton or Voltron. Parent child relationships are often called foo/bar and bees/knees, etc. I try to stick to English, but sometimes I slip and using French or Spanish words. I went through a Star Wars phase, lol. Strangely enough most of the complaints have come from my use of uncommon English words.

    @bluehiro if I find a concierge task I would tip it with real money after the task has been done
