My question: Can I (or rather, should I) create a taxonomy and a custom content type that have the same machine name? I plan to 'link' those two together.
I tried to search around and could not find an answer, I found out that two custom fields cannot have the same name, even if they belong to two different content types for example. So that would lead me to suggest that the answer to my question is probably not (i.e. they would try to use the same table name). But I don't know if that's correct.
Say I create a site for a school, and want to have a custom content type 'staff' that will hold teachers, administrative staff, etc. I will also have a vocabulary that has these different staff categories (teachers, administrative staff etc), which I also thought of giving it the name 'staff'. Is this a bad idea?
PS: I'm using Drupal 8
