Scripting - Filling Null values

Hi All ,

Have kind of basic question i guess 
Need help

I have table with 2 fields 

ID's      Name

1          Apple

2           Orange

3             Mango

1_1          -

1_2         -

1_3          -

2_2       -

3_1        -

3_2      -


I have above table where Names are  null for 1_1 , 1_2 ,1_3 ,2_2,3_1,3_2

I could require below table as output ( To be done in Backend )


ID's      Name

1          Apple

2           Orange

3             Mango

1_1      Apple

1_2      Apple

1_3     Apple

2_2   Orange

3_1  Mango

3_2   Mango

Basically  for the null values , based on left of ( before underscore ex 1_1 , 2_2)  and map with above ID's and get the names

Advance Thanks
