40 Falsehoods programmers believe about names
This blog post was written back in 2010, but I just ran across it today. My apologies if it's been discussed here before. It's p̶a̶i̶n̶f̶u̶l̶ funny because it's true :).
A sample from the list:
- 21. People’s names are globally unique.
- 22. People’s names are almost globally unique.
- 23. Alright alright but surely people’s names are diverse enough such that no million people share the same name.
24. My system will never have to deal with names from China.
