What have you found to be the best way to name modular blocks? I want them to be concise but descriptive for the user to understand what it’s for.

Is there anything else in Contentstack that is really imortant from a naming perspective?

For modular blocks, the naming conventions have not been a priority for many of our customers. But I have seen cases where a prefix may be used like promo_1_col. 

When you are trying to find content, sometimes establishing a prefix for the title field helps. This is true in areas when you have hundreds or more of entries. Since you quickly identify items by title.

Also, please see this video that shows other items that may be helpful with Content Modeling.  Cheers!
