Naming and name spaces are important in a lot of contexts:
  • natural language (naming things, people, places, …)
  • programming languages (think about scoping, encapsulation, C's static, inheritance, …)
  • networking (Addresses, DNS, IDs for various types of sessions like in TCP or RPC, …)
  • crypto (Identifiers in certificates, fingerprints in PGP, …)
  • law (Trademarks, libels, …)
Unfortunately, computer science is mostly ignoring the whole topic. In the hope to change this a little, I'm building a bibliography/link list on naming.
Additions, corrections and comments are welcome!
