They are not "smashed together", they are just "intimate".

I like the term LumpyWords. -- KatieLucas

Or how about 'space-challenged.'' -- RobHolecko

I've always used the term StudlyCaps, but note the semantic difference between camelCase (one hump) and CamelCase (two).

Well, the one humped one is dromedaryCase, but IfYouHaveMoreThanTwoWordsTheNumberOfHumpsIsNotReallyTheDistinctiveThingAboutIt?.

Or what about CapitalizedConcatenated?? -- StijnSanders

ConCapitalated? -- wandering stranger

Or CapiCated? -- follower of the wandering stranger
