      Good point!

      I amend my previous suggestion: make sure customers are included in the
      team you go to the bar with after work to brainstorm for metaphors.

      Howdy,

      Open source projects are sometimes good for naming conventions.
      Often a naming convention will follow a pattern (factory, strategy
      etc).

      When it come to metaphors however, I find my customers are the
      best sources of classnames. Building the domain layer in
      words that they understand and relate to it makes life much easier.
      Easier to write tests they understand, easier for them to write tests,
      leads to deeper understanding of the business (abstractions and
      relationships between entities etc). Thats the beauty of the
      metaphor.
