In an attempt to augment individual uniqueness over sameness, names and numbers can help to establish a relational identity, as mere labels for a set of problems. Gottfried Leibniz established the modern formulation of identity, stipulating that x is the same as y if and only if every predicate true of x is true of y as well. Of course, truth is just as slippery as equivalence.
