A name-space is used to distinguish two similarly-named things. Consider the domain name system (DNS) of the internet. The internet could have these domains: "" and "".

The local name part of each domain is the same ("knell"), but the two domains are distinguished by belonging to different name-spaces ("com" and "net").

Is this enough, or do you need more detail?
