[protege-owl] can't reuse property names?

Theoretically you should be able to. We know that there might be a bug 
related to deleting properties that are still cached somewhere and 
Protege therefore thinks that they are not really deleted, so you cannot 
create a new property with the same name. The problem is that we cannot 
reproduce this case.

So, is this a problem that is always reproducible for you? If yes, can 
you please send us the exact steps you do (tab, widget, etc.), so that 
we can reproduce it and fix it?

Did you do this in client-server mode or in stand-alone mode?

If you restart Protege, you will be able to create the property with the 
same name.
