This is when several works share a name. They could even be different media. And yet they're completely unrelated.

Essentially, NamesTheSame when applied to works. When the names are slightly different, it might be a case of TranslationMatchmaking. If the titles are identical to each other except for an added article in either ("a," "the," etc.), for instance ''Film/{{Following}}'' and ''Series/TheFollowing,'' we'll count them too.

Compare StockEpisodeTitles. See also RecycledTitle, which is when a work set in the same fictional universe uses the same title as an earlier one.

This is so prevalent that Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} developed the Disambiguation system to address this and similar issues (like common surnames). So have we, actually--see the AmbiguityIndex for a list.

For those unfamiliar with intellectual property laws, titles can't be copyrighted and it's totally legal to name a work with the same name as another one, however, if the title is trademarked, then you can't. Trademark covers a series/franchise, not a single work.

'''Care must be taken to make sure this doesn't become a militant InNameOnly. This is strictly when two works just happen to share the same name, not an adaptation/sequel/remake that bears no resemblance to the previous work'''.
