A party who is ignorant, in whole or in part, of the name or identity of a person
who may properly be made a party, may proceed against such person as an unknown party
by designating so much of his name and identity as is known. If the name or remainder of the name becomes known all subsequent proceedings shall
be taken under the true name and all prior proceedings shall be deemed amended accordingly.
