To say it simply:

there is not the same statistical likelyhood, that two people called Samuel (there may have existed during the past millenia several millions of this name) or two tribes called Benjamin (maybe in the extreme case 3-4) could be the same, judged on nothing else as on the name.

That a Benjamin and a Banu-Yamina are one and the same is the probability at about 50%, or 33%. That two Samuels are the same, the probability is rather in the direction of 0.
