As I already told you, "Url" is perfect upper camel case! See

"url" is not a word in a linguistic sense, but an acronym;

Technically speaking, it's an initialism, since you (typically) speak
each letter as they represent something independent. Acronyms
typically get spoken slurred as a word. U-R-L vs saying "earl" :)

This is why "Url" bothers me so much. URL is a prominent and important
initialism, just like IPv6, etc.
