What are Variable Naming Conventions in JavaScript

While naming your variables in JavaScript, keep some rules in mind. The following are the variable naming conventions in JavaScript −

  • You should not use any of the JavaScript reserved keywords as a variable name. These keywords are mentioned in the next section. For example, break or boolean variable names are not valid.
  • JavaScript variable names should not start with a numeral (0-9). They must begin with a letter or an underscore character. For example, 123test is an invalid variable name but _123test is a valid one.
  • JavaScript variable names are case-sensitive. For example, Name and name are two different variables.

Here are the Examples 

var name; // correct
var 2name; // incorrect
var _2name; // correct
