How choose units names?

I was thinking what are the best names to my units to not to conflict
with the units of the FPC, Lazarus, and others frameworks or libs.
e.g. fpc\2.5.1\packages\fcl-web\src\base\webutil.pp

There are a great chance this unit name exists in some libs or
frameworks, on the web.
Even I would take this name, isn't?

On the sources of FPC, exists a lot of units with a bit name...
e.g. fpc\2.5.1\packages\ggi\src\*.pp  (ggi.pp | gii.pp | ggi2d.pp)

All these names could be a name of variable...

How you have no conflict with names of the units? Do you use some
prefix in your units as "uwebutils.pp", "mywebutils.pp",
"xyzWebUtils.pp", etc.
