“Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names”

A 2010 blog article that lists 40 false assumptions that many software developers make about the names of people. It’s quite the list.

I have for your enjoyment and/or edification, two articles that deal with this list. The first is the original blog post which is, as of April of 2019, located at https://www.kalzumeus.com/2010/06/17/falsehoods-programmers-believe-about-names/

The second is the same list with counterexamples and/or explanations why each assumption is wrong. https://shinesolutions.com/2018/01/08/falsehoods-programmers-believe-about-names-with-examples/
