Correct, Zenrain. At first, I thought that would be a problem when searching for a month name where multiple instances of the same word (January) appear as children of thoughts with year names (2016, 2017). Fortunately, TheBrain takes care of this in the search field when there are duplicate names by indicating the parent thought. Searching for January returns "January < 2016," and "January < 2017." Brilliant.
As an aside, the inability to hierarchically display the paths of duplicate names strikes at the heart of my major frustration with OmniFocus for task management, and TheBrain's superiority. I have projects that repeat quarterly that require items to go in bins that should always be named the same. The delineation of each bin (thought) comes from the parent thought names (Project or Folder names in OmniFocus terms). OmniFocus hides those paths iOS apps. This means clicking back up stream when creating new tasks just to be sure I'm working under the correct parent. This is yet another area where TheBrain shines in letting me quickly see where I am in my data. I think TheBrain focuses much better than OmniFocus focuses. :-)
