ES++  for exactly the same reasons. I use postfix increment because I didn’t even think of the completion angle until Mark brought it up. The fingers type what the fingers type.

I also support for the other many fine reasons previously mentioned in this thread: matches user expectations, the description is more commonly used in art than NUL, which remains obscure even if technically accurate. See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Null-terminated_string <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Null-terminated_string>. I want to contribute to the “broad community support for renaming”.

That said, I’d prefer utf8String and utf8CString, but I suspect that’s a non-starter, and the initial pitch misidentifies the properties as methods.
