Can nickname be duplicate?

Does Tor identify each node by its nickname? for example, in torrc, a series of commands such as:

ExcludeNodes nickname,nickname,...

EntryNodes nickname,nickname,...

ExitNodes nickname,nickname,...


But when we see at http://torstatus.kgprog.com, (sorted by their names) we can find a bundle of nodes with the same nickname “unnamed”, see following:


If I want to remove a node located in China whose nickname also is “unnamed”, I just add “ExcludeNodes unnamed” to torrc. How does tor know which node I want to remove, perhaps, it removes a node in Europe which I want to keep.


Can anyone explain why?
