A naming convention I picked back in my obj-c days:


-- archetype, class, module, etc
local DB = require( 'DB' ) 

-- specific instance
local aDB = DB( 'sqlite://' )

Of course, one could argue that an expressive one letter code such as, hmmm, let me think, 'd' would be plentiful enough to fully express the meaning, complexity and nuances of such a variable... but... to each his own... des goûts et des couleurs, on ne discute pas.
