  • What is Naming an Entity?

    Choose the name of your entity carefully. It is very important that your name portray the image you want for your new company. Legally, the name you select must not be "deceptively similar" to any existing company or must be "distinguishable on the record" of your state.

      Hi

      It seems as though as software developers mature they develop consistency in their approach to just about every aspect of their work, regardless if there is a good reason for adopting a particular practice or not.

      For instance, in data modeling I developed the habit of always naming my tables in the plural – Employees instead of Employee, and such. There’s no reason for this convention, other than perhaps I copied what I saw from the Northwind database.

        Hello
        Full Word Search:
        Full Word Search looks for an exact match on a word within an entity name. If you enter "Ford" the search would return all entities which have "Ford" as a word in their name. If you enter "Ford Motor" the search would return all entities which have "Ford Motor" in their names. The search will not return "FordMotor Inc". The search would, however, return "Ford Motor Inc".

        Partial Word Search:
        Partial word search looks for a series of letters at the beginning of a word within an entity name. If you enter "lil" the search would return all entities which contain "lil" at the beginning of a word. For example, results would include Lilly Inc., Eli Lilly Inc. and Lillian Smith Family Trust, Inc.

        And...
        When you are searching for information on a company which has "and" or "&" as a part of its name, you may need to perform your search using both cases in order to produce satisfactory results.

        Special searches:
        Some special cases exist that would require extended search or download times that would not be practical for interactive use. Additional types of searches are available upon request. For example, searches by registered agent, officer name, or new entities filed during a particular time period can be performed on your behalf by Access Indiana during non-peak periods and returned to you via email.

          I personally think that there is no need to waste time to choose proper name, you may prove your existence only by your work.

            entity name
            Also known as an entity reference. Code for a special or extended character. Entity names prevent browsers from misinterpreting these characters. For example, the lesser than and greater than signs (<, >) are used to form tags in the code. Using the entity names &lt; and &gt; instead of < and > prevents browsers from interpreting the characters as tag brackets.

              I see where you're coming from here, but I'm going to have to disagree with you.

              Logically, I think that you're correct, when modeling the relationships, it does make more sense for the entity's to be singular. But that's not the only way to look at a database. For example, the Workflow table in your example above is a collection of Workflow entities. Therefore the table itself should be called Workflows.
              I try to name my tables the plural of the entity that they contain.
              This is all just my opinion, but since I do Rails development, it's a good opinion to have. By naming the tables plural, I'm following the Rails convention and saving myself unnecessary configuration.

                Yes I agree proper naming is very important, but I think special character should not be there like don't write '@' instead of 'at'.. I think you should choose the most unique one.

                  Entity name a only single words name, and the name should be relevant, original, unique and meaningful to the users. The entity name include a particular word to clarify its meaning.
