Identical names can be a problem. Particularly when the other "you" is suspected of doing something wrong, has a faint physical resemblance to you and is in the same industry as you.
Consider the case of a lawyer in the State of New Mexico, by the name of Eric Dixon, who was suspended from the practice of law for (allegedly) lying to protect a client. (Here's a news story from Albuquerque, NM television station KRQE-TV on the case.)
Comment one: There are plenty of clients who want lawyers to lie for them. In many quarters, being a lying lawyer is considered zealous advocacy and helps win clients. That is a totally separate issue for another day.
Comment two: I AM NOT THIS GUY. (See this information from the New Mexico Bar.)
Comment three: I've actually made this clarification before and a long time ago, too. See my article from 2011.
