Meaningful method names are crucial for the readability and maintainability of software. Existing naming conventions focus on syntactic details, leaving programmers with little or no support in choosing meaningful (domain) names. In this paper we propose to build a recommendation system that supports software developers and software architects when naming identifiers in source code as well as when naming elements in {UML} diagrams. We discuss related work, outline the design of such a recommendation system and discuss possible evaluation strategies.
