Hi all!
Actually this is only a general database question. What is the best practice for naming tables and columns if the names contain two or more words? Should we use underscore (_) to connect the words (like first_name) or just put the words one after another (like firstname)?

I should've used Google before posting this question here.

Anyway, thank you Shailesh!
