Wide world of sports.

I've got a question about hosta sports. Say for instance, two people
have the same variety of hosta and both of their hostas sported a new
variety with a gold center and a green margin (hypothetically). If each
of the sports are from the same variety and each sport is seemingly
identical, but in two different parts of the country, are these sports
considered to be the same? Or can each of these two people name it
differently? It seens to me there are several sports in the sieboldiana
'Elegans' lineage (among many others) that appear identical but have
different names. Aren't there any factors that determine, "Oh, close
enough." ?????
