Only Hoglah lacks the qualification "(daughter of Zelophehad)". I am very much pattern oriented so I wasted time verifying this was who I wanted.

True, the possible confusion is only with Beth Hoglah assuming that the broader literature covered has no other occurrences. But that doesn't mean it is without negative consequences:

See who is missing from the selection list? It adds to the difficulty in finding the correct entry.
