With the advent of a service like coingen.io, there's going to be A LOT of altcoins flooding the market.

So once a coin name has been created is there anything stopping another coin being created with the exact same name?

Nope, only problem will be people getting confused and technical problems if altcoins run on similar ports and work similarly. Name is completely cosmetic.
