I somehow keep hearing native speakers of English saying "next next week" here. Is it now common to say that among native speakers? I feel it a bit strange.

Very uncommon (at least here in California) I would say "the week after next."

I would never use this, I would use - the week after next.

I see it a lot in ESL and in the international community. I teach at an international school in Japan and the kids say it all the time, no matter how often you correct them!
I guess my coworkers have gotten it from our students. Having had a bit of upbringing in the States as a kid, I feel it VERY strange.
