Epic names? Edited

New to JIRA. 

Can anyone explain why epics have both a Name and a Summary? I find myself always making them identical. 

Edit: Never mind, I found this: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/Epic-Names-vs-Summary/qaq-p/24899/jump-to/first-unread-message

Thanks!

Epic name is what you see in the "Epic Panel" on a scrum backlog and also Epic name is used as the "Epic link" in the linked story.  Whereas Summary is just the normal JIRA field. 

Thanks. I'm just still not sure why you would want those things to be different....
