Identify renaming opportunities by expanding conducted renamings. Once a rename refactoring is conducted manually or with tool support, the proposed approach recommends to rename closely related software entities whose names are similar to that of the renamed entity. The rationale is that if an engineer makes a mistake in naming a software entity it is likely for her to make the same mistake in naming similar and closely related software entities. The main advantage of the proposed approach is that it does not involve difficult semantic analysis of source code or complex natural language understanding. Another advantage of this approach is that it is less influenced by subjective factors, e.g., experience and preference of software engineers.
