Do you mean you have 3 different Amazon Accounts?

If so, you'll need to speak to Customer Services and ask if they're prepared to merge them into one. They're not obliged to do so but it will do no harm to ask.

Each device registered to an Amazon account will have it's own unique name and @kindle.com email address. That doesn't mean they're all registered to different accounts.

Yes each device has a different unique name - I'm not quite sure how I managed to do this but would like to resolve

Why do you want them to have the same name? If you wanted to send a book to a particular device from Manage Your Kindle or when buying it from the website how would you know which one that was if they all had the same name?

Not sure if I'm reading this right, but........... Each KIndle or device, has a unique name e.g. Linnie's Kindle 1 and a unique email address e.g. Linnie_47@Kindle.com which is just there for you to use to email documents to and is otherwise irrelevant. Presuming that all 3 devices are registered to the same Amazon account ( the one you used to log in here to post this) then all you have to do is download your books from the Cloud tab on whichever device you want. If I read it wrong and they are all registered to different accounts then you will have to Contact Amazon.

whatever you do it will only be sent to one device. You should however see it on the others in the "cloud" and be able to download from there so long as they are all registered to the same amazon account using your same email address if they are not there is no way of doing it without registering them to the same account.
The device it is going to be sent to is in a drop down box when you buy a book you can change this so it is sent to the device of your choice.
