I came across the distinction between the name of an object and the name of the class that it belongs to in an oblique way again today, which made me question my acceptance that it would be natural for them to differ.

I asked a question on SO here:

I wonder if anyone on the R-Devel list has a better explanation for why the class name of an object and the object type name of an object should differ? 

Happy holidays,
