Jira issue originally created by user pawellen:

Doctrine can't quote (character) collumn and table names. Hundreds of times I use doctrine I have same problem, errors in queries becouse of using names like in sql language, for example table namegroup, collumn nameorder`. It is very annoying. I cant change collumn/table names it is used by other systems I have no influence on them. Doctine becomes unusable.

You can use a custom quoting strategy or the technique described at to achieve this.

Doctrine does not fix bad naming decisions.

Ok, thx. I have just written GraveAccentQuoteStrategy class and it works good.

But I have to tell You that you should not say "Doctrine does not fix bad naming decisions." becouse my sytuation is that I am writting system for telecommunication company and they have their own databases and many other applications created by third party companies witch use this databases and they were created aprox 5-15 years ago so it wasnt my desicion :) Doctrine is a tool that helps - not causes problems :)
Btw. Good job thanx for QuoteStrategy option !

The default quoting strategy supports using quoted names by specifying it in the mapping. so you don't even need to create a custom strategy most of the time.

and Marco never said it was you taking the bad decision :)
