namespace of javascript function ?

In my html page, when it calls a javascript function, I believe it looks through the imported javascript files one by one to find out the function name that matches to the one in the html. What if there are two identical function names defined in two different javascript that are both imported into this html ? Will the first found one be invoked or what ? Is there a way I can specify which javascript file I want the code to search for that function name ?

Thank you.

It is invalid to have two names in the same global namespace that are the same. Don't do that.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
