Issue with Duplicate Merge Fields in PDFs

I have been utilizing merge fields from our Salesforce instance into our Forms and Contracts for a couple of years now and have never come across this issue.  Since we utilize Salesforce, we will have certain merge fields duplicated on multiple pages.  For instance, the Record Owner's Name and Firm from their User records will be on different pages, but will be coming from the same source and need to show the same information.  Everything seems to be fine once the documents have been merged, it is printing that is causing the issue.
If I place "Master.Owner_Name" into the PDFs on multiple pages, it will change the name to "Master.Owner_Name#1" and "Master.Owner_Name#0".  So now when our users are printing the documentation, the fields are printing out vertically.
Has anyone seen this issue before and how were you able to resolve?
Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

PDF forms are not Salesforce forms and do not work in the same way.
Within a PDF form any field with same type of field and same name will share the same value.
All fields should be uniquely named.
LiveCycle form behave differently and do support same field names with different values unless a field is configured as a global field.
The usual way to have multiple copies of a from within a single PDF is to use a template to make the multiple copies and uniquely name the fields on the copy of the form.
