Code Inspection: Local variable hides member

Having a local variable with the same name as a field effectively hides a member field. Here is an example:

class Person { string name; void DoSomething() { string name = "..."; } }

This can lead to a confusing situation as someone might assume that the name they are referring to in the DoSomething() method is the field previously defined.
