Here we are referring to the names assigned to the files that contain your data. The goal is to be able to locate the specific file that you need with ease. The file name should help people accurately identify the file. Moreover, it should be descriptive, in the sense that the name should give an idea about the content of the file. This can be achieved by embedding some keyword in the file name. Other information that can be incorporated into the name that helps facilitate identification is the date the file was created and the person responsible for the content. The name should be descriptive but not too long.
