    John Cowan posted on a possible new term for title-casing:

    Why not "initial-casing" or in longer form "word-initial-casing" or
    "initial uppercasing"?

    Such terms would better cover forms like proper names and German nouns
    which certainly occur in the middle of sentences as well as other
    "important words given initial capitalization in English book and
    chapter titles.

    This would also cover camel-casing as in "MacDonald" or often used in
    variables of computer languages where the capitalization is used to
    indicate the *initial* letter of a new section of the word.
