If you find duplicate names, check if the device names also appear in the Offline Devices section. If so, tap on Edit and delete the device with the duplicate names. This may be due to devices having randomized MAC addresses turned ON by default. You also have the option to
turn OFF this feature on your client device.

Understanding the icons
