    Feels like the phrasing here could be a little more sensitive to the alienation programmers can feel due to the esoteric nature of the craft.

    There are so many options here that dont imply that programmers are other-than-human:
    • Common Naming
    • Laymans Naming
    • Regular Naming
    • Readable Naming
    • Designer Naming

    Stop, that's even worse.

    There's should be example how it looks like. As a programmer I have no idea what human naming is.

    Better option would be "Simplified Naming". "Readable" makes no sense, since the "Programmer" naming is readable to many.

    Simplified Naming at least makes some sense. None of the other options mentioned fit quite right.
