If two bits of code loaded the same script with two different names, then
they'd both load, and that would most likely cause breakage too. So you
can't win here.

Best to choose the most obvious name based on the source of the script, so
that hopefully both of them don't load and only one of them does. This may
break, but it's less likely to break than loading two different versions of
the same script is.
