Naming ID columns

I’ve been working on a system where the system-generated Primary Key on tables is called ID as opposed to TABLENAME_ID. From my experience so far I have become an ardent proponent of the latter. It is incredibly frustrating matching ID to TABLENAME_ID in joins. If the source table used TABLENAME_ID it would be so much simpler!
