Avoid abbreviations whenever possible, especially ad hoc ones. If you use commonly or easily understood abbreviations, use them consistently. Inconsistent abbreviations make it difficult to remember the correct name of a function or variable, as for example, using VisibleRegion some places and VisRgn others. Remember, code is read many more times than it is written: long, readable names will better stand the test of time.
