Comment (by sciamannikoo):

 I see @boonebgorges proposed patch which seems to go to the right

 The problem of unique names, rather than slugs, will cause issues to a
 fairly good amount of users relying on plugins such as WPML, to handle
 translatable taxonomies.

 Think for instance to the "Hotel" term in a theoretical "Accommodations"
 The word "Hotel" is used in many languages.
 It would make sense and would be acceptable to have a different slug for
 every language (e.g. hotel, hotel-fr, hotel-it, etc.), but would make very
 little sense, if people have to think a nice way to translate the same
 word, when displayed in front-end.

 Without a fix like the one proposed by @boonebgorges many people already
 using duplicated term names, will be negatively affected.
