A "solution" would mean that there is a problem, and I'm not sure that there is one. It's not surprising that there are people sharing the same name. Do you think other members might confuse the two of you? You can add a signature that is yours alone, so that all your posts are recognizable as being different than the ones from the other member.

Or you could add a middle initial.
