I said "Oh that's the same name," and he got real mad because "Everybody says that and they're clearly different names."

I have a 4 year old nephew called John, so yeah it still happensDo people still call their kids John or Mary? I never notice it any more. I have two uncle johns and two aunt Marys and lots of cousins also called John and Mary. I myself am a John but known generally by one of its variants.
