How do I get my list with the same names but different parents to work?

I have a list that has Meetings, Food, and Cars. These 3 items should both be under domestic and international as parents. When I try to enter them in manually they just move parents and when I import they it gives me a warning. I tried to create codes for them individually as well. Would I need to use a numbered list?

Yes you need to create numbered list with unique code for each item.

A standard composite hierarchy will not tolerate duplicate names and/or codes within the lists.
An alternative is to simply use both lists within you target module as dimensions and assign values to each intersection of the list items with a grid.
