Are the names "Abraham" and "Isaac" normally used in conjunction, or is this
combination reserved to this particular situation?
Rav Kook, the first Chief Rabbi of Palestine was "Avraham Yitzhak".

There are about 500 references which contain "Avraham Yitzhak" on Google, although
these do include references such as "Avraham, Yitzhak".

Considering "Abraham Isaac" I wanted to exclude Bibilical and other references. I
found that there were about 5,700 results if one excluded Rav Kook. Naturally
there are duplications.

There are quite a few rabbis of this name besides Rav Kook.

Clearly one can say that it is a very accepted combination.
