Now that you have described your actual usecase, here's a solution:

        require every repository have a unique name ;-)

You are just asking for trouble and confusion by duplicating the
repository name. Here's another solution:

        use one repository with multiple projects

This latter solution allows you to have identical "names" because the
path from the root of the repo is itself unique. You can limit access
to each project individually, so there is no benefit to having
independent repos on that basis...
