I am confused. I have a database A with logical name AAA
and AAA_log, its filename is AAA.mdf and AAA_1.ldf. I did a backup and restored it to a database called B. B also has logical names of AAA and AAA_log, but the filename is BBB.mdf and BBB.ldf. Since the logical names are the same, does this mean that when I update BBB, AAA is also updated?

Nope, I don't think so.. the updates should only be into Database B

No , as it's a different database.
