Windows 2012 Remote Desktop services naming convention

I am about to setup windows server 2012 Remote Desktop services. I plan to have 3 Rds servers, plus web app, broker server and licensing server.

Can someone suggest what roles i can put together and naming conventions of servers.

Thanks

Phil

Thanks for this

I was thinking of using

Ldn-Rds-01, ldn-Rds-02 and ldn-Rds-03 for Remote Desktop servers. What names would you give broker and web app/lic server.

Thanks

Phil
I don't know what ldn stands for, but what about:
Web App/license -> ldn-Wap-01
Broker server     -> ldn-Brk-01

Take into consideration whether you should standardize the number of characters in the name, i.e. limit the code of the role for example (like say only 3 characters for the role code as in your example rds), vs. different name sizes for different roles, like:
RDS server       -> ldn-Rds-01               and
Broker server  -> ldn-Brkr-01.

I would prefer to put rules and standardize the number of characters for each code. So if you foresee a growth abover 99 servers then you might want to have the number of digits in the number code to be three, like in: ldn-Rds-001.
Do users connect to central server broker and it evenly distributes to rds servers.

What about public cert.

Do I go for rds.domain.com that points to public ip that Nats to broker server
