I want to write for percussion with 2 independent staves but keeping the same name like for example percussion 1.
Tried to hide one of the instrument name but it didn't worked.

I couldn't find a way to leave a staff part name blank either.
Maybe just add a period (.) for a name. :? ???

Or as a workaround maybe try this:
Start by selecting None for part/staff names in the Notion 5 menu "Score>Full Score Options... layout tab: select None in the two drop-down menus for "Titles.." e.g. the image below.

Then, add alternative "part names" as seen below using the Score>Add Title, Header, Footer... window.
The Dedication and Part name Text Style fields work well for this.
Add a checkmark to change the orientation of the text to the upper left.
Change the font, size, etc. or hide them if not desired.

If names are hidden, clicking on a staff and using "Shift-I" to open the Change Instrument window(as below)
the part name of the staff will be shown at the top of the window.
To close the window press the escape key.
