Two ActiveX dlls with the same project name

Does anyone know if using the same name for two VB projects can cause problems (aside from general confusion), or is it just the project/class combo that is the key?  For instance, if I have ABC.dll and XYZ.dll registered on the same server, and both have Project1 as their library name, can that cause problems?  Any references, links pro or con would be appreciated.  Thanks.

This would create problems if you plan on using both ABC.dll and XYZ.dll in the same application. Once you reference ABC.dll with Project1 as the Lib Name, you will not be able to reference XYZ.dll also with the same Lib NAme in the same application. If you do not intend to use both the dll's in the same application, then I do not see any problems this should create.
