Default array allocation question in java

In my source code for a mathematical project and I'm running into a problem that ends with a duplicate variable names error. In my function I take a string as an argument to be the name of a new array that will be allocated. Here's what the source code looks like
private static void somefunction(String name) {
int name[] = new int[10];
I need to call that function at least twice and I think that the compiler is getting confused and tries to allocate an array by the name of name instead of the string I provide as an argument. When it gets called the second time it tries to allocate name[] again and javac raises the error.
Does anyone know how I could tell Java to name the array what I provide as an argument?
