Naming conventions for path?

Setting up my first bigger Python program I find myself al little bit
confused with the use of path. That is, using path as a variable I dont
exactly know what I am referring to when joining and spliting path names. I
would like to use self explaining variable names for those path parts. Lets
look an example:
The whole thing is usually referred to as path. But also the part underlined
with ---- can be addressed with path. Alternatively the whole thing can be
named filename (or any thing else if want to but I talk about conventions).
+++.*** can also be filename
+++ filenameRoot ?
*** fileExtension ?
---- directory or dir ?
Are there any conventions in Python (or any other language) that are more or
less widely used? Or should I come up with my own naming scheme and just
stay consistent throughout may project(s)?
Thanks for advise.
