|Checking Data / Checking Names|
One user's buddy name will not conflict with another user's buddy name (even for the same person), but there will be a conflict with any Alternative Spoken Name that is the same.
For example, Jane has recorded a buddy name of Dad for her father Steve, and Christopher, another badge user, has an Alternative Spoken Name of Dad. Jane calls Christopher on business and later calls her Dad to meet for dinner. She will be asked if she means Steve, because there are now two entries for Dad: her own Buddy, and Christopher's Alternative Spoken Name.
