My workflow for this is:

Name the first compound clip either generically, or with name of whoever you're identing first in the project.

When you want to add a new lower third ident in the timeline, go to the browser, and duplicate that compound clip (Command+D), rename that newly copied clip as your next ident, and then connect it where appropriate on the timeline. (Just make sure you SELECT your newly named duplicate before renaming/connecting, as the highlight will still be on the original clip after you first create the duplicate). Go into the newly connected clip in the timeline and put in the new name text that you want.

Any changes to a compound clip WITHIN a library, will affect them all (unless they are duplicates with different names). Compound clips copied from one library to another, become new unconnected entities.
