Questionable name

Reports variables, methods, or classes with questionable, not really descriptive names. Such names do not help to understand the code, and most probably were created as a temporary thing but were forgotten afterwards.


int aa = 42;

Rename quick-fix is suggested only in the editor.

Use the option to list names that should be reported.
