Name's the Same can be a trope rather than trivia. It is frequently invoked as form of humor (in Who's on First? sense) or as a plot device involving Mistaken Identity. I do think it is true that a lot of examples listed are trivia rather than trope, but it needs to be tightened up rather than simply declared "trivia, not trope." Just my two cents.

That seems like two characters in the same story having similar names. This trope is for names shared by characters in different works.

Name's the Same and The Name's The Same are different pages. There were around 5 links to The Name's The Same that should have linked to Name's the Same; I have fixed those links.
