That's just madness, unless you're studying linked lists.

"That will never happen" - Some guy before it happened Laugh | :laugh:
It's the biggest lie we keep telling ourselves and a lie that has cost many a company a lot of time, effort and money.
You'll get a foreigner in the team, you decide to leave the company, you land in the hospital and someone needs to take over, management decides a team in India is cheaper... All stuff that could happen tomorrow (let's hope that hospital equipment won't crash because someone used non-ASCII characters Wink | ;) ).

I'm thinking about tooling that can't process your project names.
They may be tools from the 80's, who knows, but you'll still have to work with them.
There's a difference between using proccusl (which is also just madness in this day and age) and using PröceßCüstømerLîst, at least the first can be processed by every human and program everywhere.
I think all of us here have stories about applications that crashed because a file wasn't ASCII or UTF-8 or even BOM or whatever.

The spaces are pretty annoying as well.
I once used spaces in a project name, but quickly switched back once I had to use double quotes in practically every program I used with that application (like Azure DevOps, CLI tools, etc.).
The real fun was in using it within another double quoted string, which forced me to use escaped double quoted strings, like cmd = "dotnet build "My project""... Ehhh... Sigh | :sigh:
I can only imagine the pain if that project name includes weird symbols as well, even if YOU can type them.

Anyway, if you dislike your team so much because they're stuck in the 70's and 80's then why don't you find another job?
I know plenty of places that aren't stuck in the past, but would make very short work of your naming conventions Smile | :)
