In Japanese, 熱い and 暑い are both read atsui and both mean 'hot'. The former pertains to an object (e.g. hot coffee) and the latter to weather.
In French 'cuissot' and 'cuisseau' have the same pronunciation and essentially the same meaning. Both come from 'cuisse' (thigh). The former applies to venison and the latter to veal.
Is there a name for these?
Are there different terms for when a language has two ways to spell a sound vs. two ways to pronounce a spelling? calls them 'different spellings', but I am asking about genuinely different words, not variants of spelling of a given word.
