Use a thesaurus when naming variables

When trying to find the best name for a variable during development or re factoring, I often find myself debating what the best name for a variable is.

I've found that using an on line thesaurus can help as a suggestion tool for naming, providing alternatives for terms in variable names which you are unsure about, which may not have been immediately obvious.
