Remember that Mongolians don't have surnames per se: they have patronymics, i.e. their father's name is their second name.   Unless they're brothers, the shared name is a coincidence.  

It was the same with Scandinavia correct? PeterSON EricSON etc.

Ireland as well. O'Brien O'Reilly (O meaning of) and McDonagh MacMahon (Mac meaning 'son of')

Yes, though only Iceland still does so.  (The big clue is that you see "Svensdotir" in Icelandic names for women.)

Spain and Malaysia are the other two places off the top of my head; Spain is slightly unique in combining both parents' names.

Spain (and the other Spanish speaking countries) does it with surnames. No patronymics. The difference that makes them unique, compared to most other western/central European cultures, is that the main surname isn't the very last, but the second to last.

It goes: Given name(s) - father's surname - mother's surname.

General shortening rules default to First Given Name + Father's Surname, but there are exceptions i.e. when the individual themselves make a point out of using the mother's surname either in lieu or in addition to the father's.

It's even worse when they use their second given name.  So someone whose name is legally Alfredo Alejandro Bautista Gonzales goes by Alejandro Bautista.  I have a client that's like that.  We have their full legal name in our system to put on their tax return, and unless I know their client ID, I'd have to look for that legal name to find them, despite it not being their name they normally use.  They also have a business which obviously is most of the work, so I put their personal client ID in the notes for the business client (which is easy to remember the ID for) just so it's easy to find them. 

But this has nothing to do with Aki recruits.

Just be glad that you don't have to deal with the hullabaloo of given name/real name/shikona/kabu the NSK employees entertain.

Maezumo has started, but only the win of Ishioka over Tatsunami's Koukiryu 煌貴龍 (Chin Haikou 陳佩煌 - the last -kou is the first kanji of his shikona) gets a mention

No doubt that Teru's a great example of returning strong from knee injury, I'm sure Ishioka will get some good advice, but injuring both knees and having to be dragged off the dohyo multiple times before he's even turned pro makes me question his durability for ozumo. Those breaks he took as an amateur will have him sliding down the rankings in the pros.

If he stays healthy, he should do fairly well.

He did not stay healthy, but he did fairly well.
