A table defined not to permit duplicate rows is called a SET table because its properties are based on set theory, where set is defined as an unordered group of unique elements with no duplicates.

A table defined to permit duplicate rows is called a MULTISET table because its properties are based on a multiset, or bag, model, where bag and multiset are defined as an unordered group of elements that may be duplicates.
