  • I once had to deal with a table named "group" (though I didn't name it). The database had been around far too long to think about changing it.
  • I too feel your pain. It is quite natural in ham radio to abbreviate Callsign (our government issued not-quite* unique ids) as 'call'. That was a poor choice for a column name for such things, since user defined procedures in SQL have to be invoked by a call keyword. I had to expand the column name such that it is wider than the longest likely value (except Roman Italic compresses Callsign more than Roman Bold does WB1GOF) http://fd.ema.arrl.org/History.php [arrl.org]

    1. A call
