Note titles should express note content

Note titles should clearly identify and summarize the individual topic contained in a particular note, such that the title of the note can serve as shorthand for the idea when linked.

This is supported by Notes should be atomic, expressing ideas as simply as possible and only as specifically as necessary before a new note is “nested” (linked to). This allows notes to more closely resemble the ideas they convey, in line with First principles thinking. A helpful guideline to promote atomicity among notes is to encourage note titles to express the content of the note as fully as possible without being too long.
