  • Pattern Title (i.e page naming convention)
    • use the words that people would most commonly search the web to find it
    • test your title by doing a 'google search' using those keywords. Check to see if what comes up is highly related to what you what to document. If it is not then keep adjusting your keywords.
    • also see what wikipedia calls it. This is, also, a global consensus.
