... It depends :) I personally use several TWs.

TiddlyWiki uses a very "special" mechanisms, where the same name for a 
tiddler actually is an advantage. 

There are 3 tiddler types: 


   - Shadow Tiddlers ... used as a fallback, if users mess up default values
   - System Tiddlers  ... user editable
   - Content Tiddlers .. or just Tiddler  ... user editable


For example: If you open the TW ControlPanel: Info: Basics 
<https://tiddlywiki.com/#%24%3A%2FControlPanel:%24%3A%2FControlPanel>   
tab, you'll see 

Title of this TiddlyWiki:  TiddlyWiki  <- This text can be edited and will 
be updated in the top right of the page

If you click the link in Title of this TiddlyWiki: 
<https://tiddlywiki.com/#%24%3A%2FSiteTitle>  it will open a tiddler named: 
$:/SiteTitle .... This is a SystemTiddler
System Tiddlers are hidden in most "end user" facing lists. They start 
with: $:/ ... Special filters are used to show them.

If you *edit and delete* that tiddler, the system will use the "core" 
default tiddler, which is called a ShadowTiddler 

The text will be: My TiddlyWiki

Also $:/SiteTitle now contains this text. ... Editing it, will show a 
"warning", for users to let them know, that they will overwrite a shadow 
tiddler

This mechanism allows plugins to overwrite  "core" content. eg: 
Translations. ... The core always contains a fallback value, and a language 
specific plugin just overwrites the texts. So if a translation misses a 
text, TW still shows the core content. ... 

See: 
https://tiddlywiki.com/editions/full/#HelloThere:HelloThere%20%24%3A%2FControlPanel

If you switch between languages, you'll see, that the texts change, but 
it's still the $:/SiteTitle shadow tiddler, that creates the site title. 

We use this "stacking" mechanism quite a lot.

hope this makes sense.

have fun!
