comment Best practices to address a person having the same name?
Case by case. Thanks for asking though. In China, having both same Surname and given name is rare. Note, formally we address someone with his family name mostly even to today. Which is different from the English I think. To give an example, say I and a person both called ZHANG Wei, Zhang is the family name, family name goes first in Chinese. I will in mail call him "Older brother Zhang", this is to differ each other the age. By doing this, we avoid the awkwardness!

Yes, it does have something to do with "English Usage". We have our own approach in dealing with "common names" in my language at least.

To conclude, I doubt that 徵 as related to tax-collection was originated independently, I guess it was derived from "Go-on-a-journey".

Hmm, I checked zdict too. (1) "military service" to (2) "tax collection", are obviously two different thing, I used to wonder, that starting from what time, was Zheng first used for tax collection. But it seems your point is, Zheng used as tax collection started INDEPENDENTLY as 徵. Then by quoting from Shiji "黃帝乃徵師諸侯", I was trying to say, that in this sentence, 徵 still closely related to a military event. Secondly, are you sure, in the old time, both 徵 and 征 were being used simultaneously?

Are you sure about that? Then what about this "於是黃帝乃徵師諸侯,與蚩尤戰於涿鹿之野。"
