US dates are perverse, speaking as a US American. I think 2019.01.04 is a better format--one that all Anglophones, even machines, can understand.

I still use US MM/DD/YYYY notation in text, but I do use that in all my work filenames because I can sort by A-Z and it puts all my reports of the same name in date order.

I just write out the month abbreviation (Jan, Feb, etc). Perfectly unambiguous.

That and writing the year in full. That said, YYYY-MM-DD (with any separator or none at all) is the most logical: we write numbers starting with the most significant digit and we sort words according to their first letters.

True, if we don't do that, we're going to run into some Y2.1k problems.
