Database naming conventions
The naming conventions in this project are the same used in the AdventureWorks sample database created by Microsoft database professionals and demonstrate many best practices in terms of style.
- Object names are easily understood
- Table names are not pluralized ("User" table not "Users")
- Abbreviations are few, but allowed (i.e. Qty, Amt, etc.)
- PascalCase used exclusively with the exception of certain column names (i.e. rowguid)
- No underscores
- Certain keywords are allowed (i.e. Name)
- Stored procedures are prefaced with "usp"
- Functions are prefaced with "ufn"
- Constraints are prefixed with DF, FK, UK, IX based on their types
- Constraints contain table's name as well as a list of columns used in the constraint (i.e. PK_User_UserID, UK_User_UserName, DF_User_CreatedDate)
Each rule has a good reasoning behind it. For example, why table names should be singular? Because this way there is less noise, such tables are easier to map to entity models using ORM tools, tables are more accurately sorted alphabetically in your IDE, table names describe the data type rather than how much data it contains, it's easier to come up with singular names, than with plural ones (with a few exceptions like News), easier to spell correctly (especially for a non-native English language programmer).
