when you import names without ids, openerp generates ids for this names and the ids is what openerp see so if you try to import the names again without first exporting it and matching each with the right id, openerp see that there is no id and assigns new ids to the names again thinking you are importing new data rather than updating old once. To avoid this, once you have imported once you have to export the names, get the ids and always import with the same ids. Hope this helps
