Abstract
Good names are important in programming. Names do not affect program performance, but can make program text clearer. In particular, they can bring out family relationships between similar procedures. The Author discusses common obstacles to good naming. The Author then gives some examples of good naming in the language Logo, a language in which naming (with the TO construct) is a central metaphor for the programmer's activity. The work reported herein was supported in part by the Foundation Research Program of the Naval Postgraduate School with funds provided by the Chief of Naval Research. This paper is to appear in Computers in the Schools.
