maybe the old page is in the pastebin? In this case wp will use numbers in the slug. The same can happen when you use tags or categories which are called “articles”.
Thank you for your help. You were correct about the wastebin. I hope not to make that mistake again.
do you mean we should NOT use the word “articles”?

Yes – because tags/categories permalinks can conflict and wordpress uses unique slugs to avoid this.
still confused, do you mean that articles should not be used as a category and a tag? Or not as a title and a category, or a page name and a category? Do you mean that categories, tags, titles, page names should all have different “monikers”? (lost the word I was thinking of, dang)
