The volleyball players with the same full name

If Guangdong Evergrande returns Chinese League A, you will find Liu Ya-nan born in 1997 as a middle-blocker.
In the history of Chinese volleyball, there are "three Li Ying-s" (a libero, a MB, a OH/OP) and "three Wang Chen-s" (a male OP, a female setter and a female OH).
I am curious about it around the world.
My favourite roster of Chinese
male NT:
S - Li Run-ming, Zhan Guo-jun
OP - Dai Qing-yao, Jiang Chuan
OH - Ji Dao-shuai, Xia Run-tao, Liu Li-bin, Zhang Chen
MB - Zhang Zhe-jia, Chen Long-hai, Geng Xin
L - Ren Qi

female NT:
S - Ding Xia, Yao Di
OP - Gong Xiang-yu, Zhang Chang-ning
OH - Hui Ruo-qi, Zhu Ting, Liu Xiao-tong, Li Jing
MB - Yuan Xin-yue, Yan Ni, Xu Yun-li
L - Lin Li

My avatar is Jiang Chuan. I hope more persons love him.

In Poland, we had Dominika Nowakowska (born in 1992, MB) and Dominika Nowakowska (born in 1988, OH/L). They are also 2 players called: Aleksandra Sochacka, both born in 1997, both are OH. Aleksandra Sochacka #1 played for Impel Wrocław last season and she got injuried. I don't know where she plays right now. Aleksandra Sochacka #2 plays for American University.

There are a lot of common names in Bulgarian volleyball as well, especially when there is a number of very popular family names in the country. I won't bore you with old players or an exhaustive list of less known ones, but there is a curious case. The name Georgi Petrov could be found more than once in the team rosters in recent seasons. There are 3 people with that name, 2 of them are still active players. The veteran Georgi Petrov (OH), who is now a coach I don't know where, used to play for Levski until a few years ago. He then became coach of the team and assistant in the senior NT and some junior/youth NTs. There are 2 younger players with the name Georgi Petrov and they almost played for the same club. One of them (OPP) is a former player of Neftochimik 2010 and is now competing for Deya Volley Burgas in the second division. Neftochimik 2010 recruited a talented kid Georgi Petrov (OH) for the 2016-2017 campaign (I think he came from Slavia Sofia, not 100% sure), he is the youngest of all those mentioned.
