ENGLISH

Namesake is an adjective that can refer to two or more persons or things that carry the same name.

HOMONYM

The term comes from the Latin homonymus, which in turn stems from a Greek word.

"The Argentine team will face River Plate in Uruguay its namesake." This phrase refers to a hypothetical clash between Club Atletico River Plate of Argentina, which is headquartered in Buenos Aires, and the Club Atletico River Plate of Uruguay, based in Montevideo. Both clubs are homonyms because they share the same name.

Based on this meaning also we have to emphasize that homonymous therefore serves as synonymous namesake. Thus, both as a term used another to make clear that there are two or more people who have a common link: share the name.Create Glog
