Richard Gaskin already suggested a solution:  use the long ID as opposed to
the long name.

If you create two buttons, both of the same name, they have the same long
name reference:

 answer long name of btn 1 & cr & long name of btn 2

If you use the long ID, they will have unique references:

 answer long ID of btn 1 & cr & long ID of btn 2
