Make an Honest Name

State exactly what you know, and not what you interpret or assume.

The Change

When naming code, use names that are brutally honest about what you know and what you don’t.

The Value Proposition

Honest names help you and your team perform the following:

  1. Avoid asking anyone else how the code works when no one knows.
  2. Decrease the amount of code you have to read.
  3. See when a method, class, or variable is doing too much or too little.
