Theory: NOTE NAMES
Fig. 1      A       B       C       D       E       F       G

Figure 1 shows the notes A,B,C,D,E,F, and G. The only letters possible in the musical alphabet are A,B,C,D,E,F, and G. After G, the alphabet repeats (e.g. A,B,C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C...).

Since the musical alphabet repeats, you can have the same letter in different places. It is the same pitch, just an octave higher or lower.
