The word 'Walla' conveys the idea of river in the Sahaptin language and the reason behind the repetition of the word is that it expresses the diminutive nature of the object. As the name 'Walla Walla' is used to name a river which is very small and that compels people to name it as such.

You can fund the concept of doubling of the word to name something in some other term also. When you are expressing yourself in the scientific terminology the term you should use is 'Homo sapiens sapiens. This expression itself suggests that how important the repetition of a word to express a particular idea and it applies not only to a non-living object but for a living beings also.
