On MFT 12c, you're unable to create a new transfer with the same name as an earlier transfer, even when the earlier transfer has been deleted.
If you create the transfer you get the erorr;

  Error creating transfer [TestInternalIRTransfer]. Another transfer was found with this name.

New transfers can be created using names of previous transfers that were previously deleted.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. create new transfer "ABC"
2. run some data through the transfer
3. delete transfer "ABC"
4. attempt to create transfer "ABC" again and observe the error
