HI again, aj_billing.
Thanks for the details. If you're using Google contacts, the system will not allow duplicate name. As a workaround, you can add a special character upon creating or adding a customer or supplier.
For additional information, you can check out this article to know more about using Google Contacts: Import customer or supplier contacts from Outlook, Excel or Gmail.
