«In this chapter, we focus on transforming the data elements gathered in the collection process into a cohesive set of column names. Although this chapter has sections for the various steps we should accomplish for efficient data naming, there is no specific order in which to apply those steps. In fact, the whole process is broken down into steps to shed some light on each one in turn, but the actual naming process applies all those steps at the same time. Moreover, the division between the naming and grouping processes is somewhat artificial you'll see that some decisions about naming influence the grouping phase, which is the subject of the next chapter».
