Is this name an alliteration?
Dr.Heidegger? it has the repetetive "er" sound but I'm unsure.

No. Alliteration usually happens at the beginning of several words in a series of words. Also, I only hear one "er" sound in this, but that may just be a regional thing or something.
Edit: oh. the "dr." is the other "er" sound. Ha. I get it now. It still isn't an alliteration, though.

Nope. Alliteration is "The occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words." -- http://www.google.ca/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=allit...
Here are some examples:
Silly solipsistic sap
Witty women walking westward
Temping tasty treats
