This topic outlines some basic naming conventions used when writing in the C# language. Like all conventions, they are not enforced by the compiler, but will ensure readability between developers.
For comprehensive .NET framework design guidelines, see docs.microsoft.com/dotnet/standard/design-guidelines.
For example, a property named HorizontalAlignment is more readable in English than AlignmentHorizontal.
The property name
CanScrollHorizontally is better than
ScrollableX (an obscure reference to the X-axis).
Avoid using underscores, hyphens, or any other non-alphanumeric characters.

Also, avoid using identifiers that conflict with keywords already used within C#.
In general, you should not use abbreviations or acronyms; these make your names less readable. Similarly, it is difficult to know when it is safe to assume that an acronym is widely recognized.
