I have several layers and they all have identical table organization. I need to find if there are any features that have a different names but the same UUID. I know that this could be done if I connect QGIS with Postgres but is there any way to do this in QGIS only.

    What are you expectations regarding the output ? By ”names” do you mean an attribute with names ?

    look at virtual layers, you can run SQL queries against layer(s)

I would merge the layers first, then with field calculator I would create a a virtual field "uuid"||'_'||"name" then using this solution to find duplicates: Identifying duplicate attributes in field using QGIS and then invert selection.
