In general, a namespace is a container that provides context for the identifiers (names, or technical terms, or words) it holds, and allows the disambiguation of homonym identifiers residing in different namespaces
In Programming Concept or .Net
The namespace keyword is used to declare a scope. This namespace scope lets you organize code and gives you a way to create globally-unique types.

lets us consider an example


in this ,we noted that System is the namespace(scope) in which the Console class is located. A class in a namespace can be accessed using the dot operator as illustrated in the above statement.
Namespaces are the way C# segregates the .Net library classes into reasonable groupings.
Once a namespace is imported in a program, we can use the element of that namespace without using the namespace are prefix.

Generally in java terms a namespace is nothing but a package. Here the namespace is expressed in the form of a package,which should be unique, if two classes have the same name but the package should differ.
Like java.awt.List or java.util.List, but each has there own identity.

Thanks And Regards.
