Hi All!
I'm looking for a document that describes a code pattern that defines what names you use in you classes and methods, and so on...
Anyone has an idea where I can find something like this?

Elements of Java Style is a nice little book - about $10 - with good advice on names and many other aspects of code and comment style. Google for "programming by intention" for articles that emphasize good names in readable code (but will also venture into some pretty advanced OO theory.)

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
