You don't actually have two variables of the same name in that snippet. You have a variable B::name and a local variable (arg to function) called name. The exact same construct is possible in C++. The reason you got an error is because you tried to compile Java code with a C++ compiler.

You could do this:

class B
{
public:
char *name;

void SetName(char *name) { this->name = name; }
};
