The name of an externally visible member matches, in a case-insensitive comparison, the name of one of its parameters.
A parameter name should communicate the meaning of a parameter and a member name should communicate the meaning of a member. It would be a rare design where these were the same. Naming a parameter the same as its member name is unintuitive and makes the library difficult to use.
How to Fix Violations
Select a parameter name that does not match the member name.
