    Hi,
    according to the Python manual:

    Return the ``identity'' of an object. This is an integer (or long integer) which is guaranteed to be unique and constant for this object during its lifetime. Two objects with non-overlapping lifetimes may have the same id() value. (Implementation note: this is the address of the object.)

    When I query the id of an object, I get a variety of numbers, as well as a variety of memory allocations, that loop regularly.

    my intention is to generate a unique name for an object so that it's consistent for the lifetime of that object

    Cheers
    Thanassis

    as usual, I searched a bit more and found the solution.
    I followed another thread and found GetGUID()

    Here's the result. Each cube has a unique GUID
