In keeping with a good Perl programming style

Since you are showing concerns on this matter, take a look a perlstyle - Perl style guide

Answering your question, my preference would be to give descriptive names to the connections instead of $connection and connection2.

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
