stupid example, but learning german, there are at least 3 words for carrots. they are completely interchangeable, and all simply mean carrot. to this day, i feel uneasy talking about carrots in german, cause i feel like i might use the wrong word, even though i know that they are all acceptable.
However, people are constantly asking me which name they should use - I tell them they are both her names, they can call her either one. People seem to be very uncomfortable with that.
