How can I create 40 identical lower 3rds that will have a different text?

I need to lower 3rd / ID 30 people in a video. The lower 3rds have to be the same ones animtaion / look wise. Of course I need to update each with the name of the person on camera.
It is a pretty complicated animation/project with 3 main comps and nested comps.

When I duplicate the folder contening the comps in the project it doesn't work as the changes made on Lower 3rd #1 show on Lower 3rd #2....

Again, it's 30 lower 3rds so I can't - or don't think I should have to - create a project for each person on camera. It would be too time consuming and it wouldn't make sense AE doesn't allow for this type of thing.

Any idea?

Thx

Don't know if this applies in your case, but if the text doesn't have any hugely complex animations by itself, you could prerender the other layers and then make comps that have only the text layers in them and the pre-rendered lower third underneath.
