Sytems vs. Apps hungarian, and they both wrong in update code; we read Joel[^] and do not use it, since VB6.

I will use a descriptive name. "CurrentInput", "DescText". Never will I use a form of hungarian, no matter whether sys or apps. Don't care about company's guideluines either. I write good code, despite guidelines.

We use a descriptive name. No need to include type, one can get that by hovering the mouse.

I use names; if I don't have a good one in less than a minute, I pick whatever female variable name Google offers. That takes a few minutes more. Mostly going for cat names.
