Re: Aliens with one name vs. aliens with two names

^Same difference. Kirk was originally just a renamed Pike, as Pike was a renamed April. (Kirk evolved differently to reflect the actor playing him, but if you look at how Kirk is written in the early first season, he starts out essentially indistinguishable from Pike.) The point is that what we see is the end result of a process of change and adjustment, not something that sprung into being fully formed.
