Consistent naming is important so that users of your GitHub account can easily find what they are looking for and so that you appear professional.

Figure: Bad example – Repository names are not consistently formatted
Figure: OK example – Repositories are following the lower-cased hyphenated format that is common for open source projects
Figure: ​​​Good example – Repository names are name-spaced in the format [CompanyName].[ProjectName]
