It's an interesting question. I also tried to find the answer. The only character that I found is $. Say you can write my$first$variable. But anyway I am more used to myFirstVariable than $.

It is not in mathematica, so things like "my_first_variable" don't work. I have been using a ` to separate out the words to get things like my` first`variable, but now realize it is creating other issues due to the scoping it introduces. > > Are there are other characters I can use to separate out words in variable names? > > Thanks
