I'm currently developing a Perl Module, but haven't yet decided on its name. I have a few ideas and would like to know if these are rather good or bad names. I'm also open to completely new suggestions.
Where can I ask about such naming topics? It's a programming-related topic, but it's somehow also quite meta and has nothing to do with programming itself but rather with the community's view on Perl and CPAN.
This question is related to Where to ask for feedback on (Perl) CPAN modules? but different in multiple directions:
- It's about names, not about code.
- It's about future modules, not about already uploaded ones.
The question IMHO also doesn't fit into The fourth place: Polling, Recommendations and subjective-ish stuff because there are quite specific (although not that strict) rules about module naming on CPAN. So while parts of the question may look like a poll, I except answers to contain more constructive criticism (You shouldn't use X because it could be confused with Y which already exists at Z, Module X uses namespace Y because of Z, so I suggest to use Y, too, etc.) and less subjective views.
