Now in two cases and in only two cases I know of.

The following 2 people and I believe just them have the same first name in TAGS as the same in real life.

Andy Griffith - Andy Taylor

and

Elinor (Ellie) Donahue - Ellie Walker

Now aren't those the only two or not?

Are there any more?

Why is that/this?

Doug Darling was played by Doug Dillard.

Rodney Darling...............Rodney Dillard.

Mitch Darling...................Mitch Jayne.

Dean Darling...................Dean Webb.

I was gonna use: Fred Goss (drycleaner) ............ Fred Sherman, but I do recollect that Goss' full name is listed as - H. Fred Goss.

Not sure what the "H" stands for.

 

James(Jim)Best played Jim Lindsey and character actor Burt Mustin
played Burt in several episodes.
I would like to put in my two cents worth as to why. I don't know this for a fact, but since it happens so often, I would say it cuts down a great deal on the re-takes. It's impossible to accidentally make the mistake of addressing someone by their real name if their real name is being used as the character being played as well. :)

Don't forget,  Mary Grace played Mary Grace

Tom Jacobs - Tom

Jerry Van Dyke played the banjo player Jerry Miller

Sam Muggins played by Sam Edwards in "The Christmas Story"                      

Here is a list I came up with:  Character, actor, B&W or Color, Episode Title

"Gentleman" Dan Caldwell      Dan Tobin         B&W     "Andy and the Gentleman Crook"
Mary                                     Mary Lansing    B&W     "Aunt Bee the Warden"
Eva Kryger makeup artist       Eva Kryger       Color     "The Foster Lady"
Marc Saunders                      Marc London    Color     "The Foster Lady"
Sid Hickox                             Sid Hickox        Color     "The Foster Lady"
Burt the crewman                  Burt Taylor        Color     "The Foster Lady"
Jack Smith                            Jack Smith       Color      "Aunt Bee on TV"
