We could of course refactor our code to rename things any time we like, but we don’t do this enough in practice
If we renamed things more often, then it probably wouldn’t be so hard to name them in the first place.
We also find it hard to agree on what good names and bad names look like, which makes it hard to know when renaming improves a name.
