I thought I will share some of the naming standards that I came up with, as I see long term sustainability comes with Standards. I am seeking expert's input into this. Here it goes -

 1. I come up with a 2 CHAR abbreviation for EACH application that I am going to develop. 
(For example: I started with a "Timsheet Application" and I thought TS is a good abbreviation for that).  The name of EACH Component of that application (including the name of the Application itself) will have the prefix of TS.

2. Name of each component ends with a SUFFIX to indicate the TYPE of the component. Here is the list.

Prefix for the name of any Component - 2 charactors that indicate the name of the Application
Any "Application" name  Suffix  AN
Window - It is NOT possible to have MORE than one Window in one Application Suffix  WD
