Looking through publications about naming conventions, the most recent thing I can find is the Reddick-Gray unified one. I can't find a single comment on them anywhere, except one broken link in UA which recommends them. I am currently implementing Reddick-Gray simply because it is more recent then the others I could find, which is not a valid reason.

Does anyone here recommend or discourage Reddick-Gray unified?

It's not a question of which convention you use, it is more a question that you follow a naming convention, any naming convention. You can even use your own if you like. It is more about following a standard that you, and others, can follow throughout your coding. It makes understanding code much simpler.

Also, just because it is newer, doesn't make it any better, or worse. It just makes it newer.

Have you seen

just for more option.

I wholeheartedly agree with Daniel.

The point of a naming convention is that all of the names in YOUR projects are consistent. Beyond that, you are free to adopt whatever seems most comfortable, or logical, or cool to you.

Besides, if you start chasing the most recent naming convention, won't you end up changing your own names from time to time, thereby leading to inconsistent naming across generations of your work?

More info for anyone looking into Reddick-Gray naming convention..Some of table 7 in Version 1.01 made no sense and was obviously a big error. I looked on the web and discovered that this is about as obscure as you can get.
It would appear that a version 2.0 came out in 2015, but the guy's site is now unavailable, and I can't find version 2.0. Google has less than 1000 results for "Reddick-Gray", and a lot of them are about other things. In fact this post is the first relevant result.
However, I am implementing them anyway, having already come so far. I have no experience with anything else to compare with.
