I recommend reading D.1 Emacs Lisp Coding Conventions section of Elisp
manual. In particular the paragraph about naming symbols and functions:

   • You should choose a short word to distinguish your program from
     other Lisp programs.  The names of all global symbols in your
     program, that is the names of variables, constants, and functions,
     should begin with that chosen prefix.  Separate the prefix from the
     rest of the name with a hyphen, ‘-’.  This practice helps avoid
     name conflicts, since all global variables in Emacs Lisp share the
     same name space, and all functions share another name space(1).
     Use two hyphens to separate prefix and name if the symbol is not
     meant to be used by other packages.

It is common among Emacs users to prefix personal functions with
"username/". Like `username/count-lines'.
