    Yeah. That's the way most folks handle it. Kids, dogs, phones...different names.

    This made me laugh.

    I do tend to name my iPad iPhone and iPods the same. I have noticed iTunes automatically puts a number in perentaces after the name. But I have never had two iPhones with the same name. I would have guessed it would have done something similar. So I yes if it is giving you problems just change the name or add a number after the name.
