Development Tools Git Basics Working With Remote Repositories Cloning

Two names, one repository?

The cloner called her cloned project "our_clone_project" but the originator added the cloner's project (as a remote) using the name "our_clone". (git remote add "our_clone" <path>). Two different names for one clone repo. Seems odd to me. Is that how it is done?
