They are called camelCaps (because of the hump in the middle, not because of any relation to Perl), though this may just be local usage (and if so it deserves to catch on).

    camelCaps are also known as Hungarian Notation among VB developers in particular...comes from combining a 3-letter abbreviation in front of a variable or function name that denotes what the object is, and then camelCapping(?) the words together so:
    strSomeExampleString = "An example string."
    The term Hungarian comes from Microsoft programmer Charles Simonyi, who used it at Microsoft, and encouraged it's use in VB, and happens to be Hungarian. Plus, he would joke that it kind of looks like Hungarian...

      Actually the use of Hungarian Notation amongst Microsofties predates VB by some years. I remember reading about it in the first edition of Charles Petzold's Programming Windows in about 1989.

      (I think I may have just given away too much about my dodgy past writing Windows software!)
