in our shop, all the identity columns contain the tablename + Id, so repeating the tablename would be repetitively redundant 🙂
so for example TBAddress would have an identity TBAddressID ;
so all FK's that point to is are the exact same name :
TBContact has a FK column named TBAddressID ;
on the situations where we need multiple foreign keys, we make all our keys END WITH the actual column name,
so MailAddressID,PersonalAddressId, and BusinessAddressID might co exist in the same table if we needed mulitple FK's.
