Guideline for Naming Associative Tables

Use the following general form to name associative tables.

   prime_table_name_A-prime_table_name_B

This convention helps to keep the alphabetic and logical sequences of tables synchronized, making it easier to locate the prime tables for the foreign keys that make up its composite primary key.
