Sicarus - Daemonworld.
Sicarius - Ultramarines Captain.

Two different names. Very similar, but different all the same. Welcome to the English language (and GWs semi-complete big list o' names)

Marachia - Hiveworld in the Cadian system. Destroyed during the 13th Black Crusade
Macharia - Shrine world and transport hub, from which Macharius launched his Crusade.
Ultima Macharia - Most distant world reached by Macharius

Do you have any idea how many Alexandrias, and variants thereof, there are on this planet? Alexander the Great founded or renamed nine cities to have his name in them, plus the dozens more founded since.

No, because I don't have the time to translate that, it's the disambiguation page of the German Lexicanum. However the point is, that GW doesn't bother to check if a name has already been taken for something different.

Example: Abbadon, Lieutenant of the SOns of Horus, and Abbadon, traitor Fabricator General, both serving Horus.

On the other hand, nor does the real world.

Actually the AdMech character is written (Solomon) Abbadon and the Chaos guy Abaddon, but there's a world named Abaddon.

My mistake, but it has been some time (and I can't spell).
