Hi, I have noticed that some people use "ClassnamePage.php" for their controller/model, yet some people use "Classname.php" only, without the Page word appearing at the end, but for these 2 naming, both their codes are similar that their Models both extend Page and Controller extends Page_Controller.

Technically, are they any differences for having the "Page" word for the file name?

No differences at all. More a personal preference and depends on the context. For example I use UserDefinedForm instead of UserDefinedFormPage which is a bit of a mouthful!
