Before writing the coding standard, I would recommend reading "Code Complete" which gives some very specific arguments about naming conventions and other things that would be in the standard. The good news is that no matter what, just HAVING the standard, even if it's not perfect, will go a long way.
For our company which is largely focused on embedded projects using C, we adopted one that was already well developed (Michael Barr's Netrino embedded standard), bought a few hard copies for our reference, and made a one or two page document that says that's what we're using and what changes to it we're implementing (very few tweaks). Taking this route (adopting an already written standard) saved us a TON of time (read money) and took out some of the "persona preference" discussions.
If you're using C#, why not adopt Microsoft's standard and call it a day?
(I realize this isn't exactly what you were asking about.)
