[a] name, usually short and easy to remember, that is translated into another name, usually long and difficult to remember.[2]
[a]n alternative name specified for fields, tables, files, or datasets that is more descriptive and user-friendly than the actual name. On computer networks, a single e-mail alias may refer to a group of e-mail addresses.[3]
