Naming views in xcode

Hello all,

Sorry if this question is a really easy one but I'm still new. I am creating an app with a homepage that is a tableview of stories. I named this StoryListViewController, The teasers of stories in this list go to the full stories when pushed. What would you call the second view controller? I was going to name it StoryDetailViewController but I wasn't sure if that is what everyone else would do. Thank you for your time.

Josh Lopez Naming a detail view "StoryDetailViewController" sounds like a good idea IMHO

just like with naming variables, the names of things must depict the usage so call it what it is used for
