Here's What Happened When Japan Renamed Schizophrenia | AllPsych Blog
> So JSPN decided to rename the disorder. After all, it couldn’t possibly make the situation any worse. Starting in late 2002, schizophrenia became known as Togo Shitcho Sho (“integration disorder”) in Japan.

Over the next few months, the new term spread rapidly through the psychiatric profession. Within seven months, 78 percent of psychiatrists in Japan were using it.

As usage of the new term grew, it got easier to tell people about their diagnosis. Thirteen months out, 86 percent of doctors surveyed said they found it easier to communicate with their patients using the new term.

Naming is by far one the most debated activities in computer science. We can definitely benefit of a naming convention that helps us to write maintainable and scalable code. On the contrary, poorly written CSS can quickly drive us crazy and turn into a nightmare.
