That's how I remember it, too. Although modes of the same scale have the same overall feel, each scale has a unique tonality. That's why we distinguish. Try playing something like the Locrian Natural 6th and then play the mode after it, Ionian Augmented. Very different. Or the Hindu mode then the Superlocrian.

Cultural names for minor modes are confusing. I prefer to give them their theoretical names. That one that I gave above is also called Dorian #4, and it was a magazine that gave it the name Romanian. Sometimes they end up getting confused. Particularly on the Internet. Someone suggested that the Persian scales has a bb6 instead of b6 once. AAAGH!
