Using \[Breve] as a substitute for underscore

In mathematica you cannot use underscore _  as part of a variable name
as you could in other computer languages.

Has anyone tried using \[Breve] as an underscore substitute instead.

for example:

mass\[Breve]of\[Breve]earth = 5.97*^24

or

mass[esc]bv[esc]of[esc]bv[esc]earth = 5.97*^24

I kinda like "breve" because it looks like the standard underscore
character.

What other characters do other people uses?
