The first letter may or may not be capitalized depending on the context. (In the case of WikiWords on TV Tropes, the first letter generally ''is''.)

* Also used in programming as one style for defining multi-word variables.
** This is actually useful so you can give a succinct idea of what said variable is supposed to do, instead of having to write lengthy comments about them in the function in which they're being used.
** In other languages, such as [=LISP=], the preferred convention is caravan-case, as [=LISP=] does not use infix syntax (thus freeing the hyphen), and caravan-case is generally seen as easier to read
** For those less familiar with the limitations of programming grammars, it's mainly because usually you can't have a space in a variable name.
* Used by corporations to string together two or more common nouns in a way that can be UsefulNotes/{{trademark}}ed.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' uses this style for species derivatives.
* Used by corporations when two or more predecessor companies are merged into one new one (as well as for trademark purposes).
* May overlap with PortmanteauCoupleName, {{Portmantitle}}, especially when the name comes from the first syllable of each person's name ([=TomKat=]), as opposed to merely blending them (Bennifer).
* Used for Website/{{Twitter}} hashtags containing multiple words (e.g. [=#TVTropes=]).
* Used in literature occasionally to show a character is a MotorMouth (as in, "doesn't bother to breathe" fast.) A character in the ''Animorphs'' book series, who was something of an ethereal being who didn't so much "speak" as "telepathically slam his thoughts into your brain," had his dialogue rendered this way.
* Used for most document names on classicthemes.com (e.g., [[http://www.classicthemes.com/findingEpisodes.html the page on finding episodes of old TV shows]]).
* Some people's names have these, especially if they begin with "Le" or "De", e.g. [[Creator/LevarBurton LeVar Burton]].
** Particularly common for people of Irish and Scottish origin with a "Mc" or "Mac" name: see, e.g., UsefulNotes/McDonalds, UsefulNotes/WilliamMcKinley, John [=McCain=], UsefulNotes/DouglasMacArthur, UsefulNotes/RamsayMacDonald...
* Latin script transcription of Hebrew often uses it when a title includes a noun that begins with a definite article, the prepositions "to", "as", "-ly", "in" and "from", and "and", as they are written as part of the word in the respective writing systems they use: שיר (shir) is "song", השיר (hashir) - ‘the song’. So the Hebrew name of the [[Literature/TheBible Song of Songs]] would usually be ''Shir haShirim''. Other systems might use ''ha-Shirim'' instead; this convention is usually used for Arabic (e.g. ''[[Literature/TheQuran Al-Qur'an]]'' and not ''[=AlQur'an=]'').
* Can also be seen in the names of a few U.S. sports teams:
** Minor league UsefulNotes/{{baseball}}:
*** Triple-A: Lehigh Valley [=IronPigs=], Scranton/Wilkes-Barrre [=RailRiders=]
*** Double-A: [[UsefulNotes/{{Ohio}} Akron]] [=RubberDucks=], Frisco[[note]]the [[UsefulNotes/DFWMetroplex Dallas suburb]], not the [[BerserkButton locally hated]] term for UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco[[/note]] [=RoughRiders=], Lancaster[[note]]California, not the smaller but better-known one in Pennsylvania[[/note]] [=JetHawks=], [[UsefulNotes/OtherCitiesInTexas Midland]] [=RockHounds=]
*** Single-A: Augusta [=GreenJackets=][[note]][[IncrediblyLamePun Augusta is home to the famous Masters golf tournament, whose winner receives a green jacket]][[/note]], Charleston[[note]]South Carolina, not West Virginia[[/note]] [=RiverDogs=], Clinton[[note]]Iowa[[/note]] [=LumberKings=], [[UsefulNotes/NewJersey Lakewood]] [=BlueClaws=]
*** Short-Season A: Aberdeen[[note]]Maryland[[/note]] [=IronBirds=][[note]]The name is a play on the team's owner, Cal Ripken, Jr., most famous for his record-setting streak of 2,632 consecutive games, all with the Baltimore Orioles ("Birds").[[/note]], [[UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} Everett]] [=AquaSox=], Tri-City[[note]]the Albany–Schnectady–Troy area of New York[[/note]] [=ValleyCats=]
*** Independent leagues: Fargo–Moorhead [=RedHawks=], a double dose with the Gary [=SouthShore=] [=RailCats=], Normal[[note]]Illinois[[/note]] [=CornBelters=]
** U.S. college sports:
*** [=RedHawks=]: Miami, as in Miami University in Ohio, not to be confused with the University of Miami in Florida, nicknamed Hurricanes; also the NAIA school Martin Methodist, in Tennessee.
*** [=RedStorm=]: Rio Grande, an NAIA school in Ohio.[[note]]Though a NonIndicativeName to most of the country, justified since the school is in a town called Rio Grande. It's pronounced "RYE-oh Grand", not like the famous southwestern river.[[/note]]
*** [=ThunderWolves=]: Colorado State–Pueblo, an NCAA Division II school.
*** [=WolfPack=]: No example in the U.S., but the Canadian school Thompson Rivers uses this form.
