Urm... let me correct that:

2. Never start a function or method with a UPPERCASE letter.
Initial uppercase should be reserved for class names only --
and any number of leading underscores does not affect that
rule because underscores are not in the set [A-Za-z]!

You don't want these:

  def __IllegalName
  def _IllegalName
  def IllegalName

But these are okay:

  def __legalName
  def _legalName
  def legalName

These are preferred, however, i detest superfluous underscores!

  def __legal_name
  def _legal_name
  def legal_name
