If someone was using a class from a 3rd party library they wouldn't know what private fields are used.

So if I name my private field "foo" that means another person's class that uses my library can't use the field "foo" - even a private field in their own derived class.

This is why i prefix my private members with underscore - to make it less likely this will happen.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
