    Technically speaking, no, you don't HAVE to name them differently, but if both are called "Apple TV" in their settings, one of them will temporarily rename itself to "Apple TV (2)" each time it wakes up in order to avoid a name conflict. You'll see both names in the Airplay menu on your computer, iPhone and iPad.

  • It is a good idea to do that, especially if you are using more than one iTunes, (say, maybe two different computers). Without different names you may have trouble remembering which is which.
