Python Naming Convention > Method Naming


  • Should be all in lowercase
  • Preferably a verb e.g. get_car(), purchase(), book()
  • If the name contains multiple words, it should be separated by underscores (_) e.g. get_json()
class Person:
    def get_height(self):
        return self.height

Private Method

Python does not support privacy directly. This naming convention is used as a weak internal use indicator.

  • Should follow the above naming conventions
  • Should use a leading underscore (_) to distinguish between "public" and "private" functions in a module
  • For more read the official python documentation.
class Person:
    def _foot_to_centimeter(self): # private method
        return self.height * 30.48
