To change the default database name conventions in Laravel, you can modify the configuration settings in your config/database.php file. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open the config/database.php file in your Laravel project.
  2. Find the 'connections' array, which contains the configuration settings for your database connections.
  3. Look for the connection you want to change the database name conventions for (e.g. 'mysql', 'pgsql', 'sqlite', etc.).
  4. Inside the connection configuration array, locate the 'database' key, which specifies the default database name. You can change the value of this key to your desired database name.
  5. Save the changes to the file.
  6. If you have multiple environments (e.g. development, testing, production) and want to have different database names for each environment, you can create separate configuration files (e.g. database.local.php, database.testing.php, database.production.php) and specify the database name conventions for each environment in these files.
  7. To use the custom database configuration for a specific environment, you can set the DB_DATABASE variable in your .env file to point to the corresponding configuration file (e.g. DB_DATABASE=database.local).


By following these steps, you can change the default database name conventions in Laravel and customize it according to your needs.
