Naming Constructors in JavaScript

Question
How should I name constructors when writing JavaScript?

Answer
Use PascalCase when defining constructors. If possible, name constructors with nouns.

Comments
Using PascalCase for constructors helps differentiate them from normal functions.

Example

function Person(name) {
  this.name = name;
}

Person.prototype.printName = function() {
  alert(this.name);
};

let person = new Person("Jason");
