You put as a example you and your teamate cannot have two cards with the same name like Naruto Uzimaki cannot be on the field at the same time Naruto Uzimaki (Tailed Beast Mode) cannot be on the field either. But other then that 2v2 is going to possibly be an official format. Besides what I quated isn't really that big of a deal.
That is only when they are in the deck. Any other time those ninjas DO have the same name and you cannot have both of them in play (unless an effect says you can).
Any time a card has "Name: X" in the characteristic line, that card is considered to have both names. So Naruto Uzumaki (Tailed Beast Mode) (which has Name: Naruto Uzumaki) is considered to be both "Naruto Uzumaki (Tailed Beast Mode)" and "Naruto Uzumaki" which means a Naruto Uzumaki cannot be in play at the same time, but you can have three Naruto Uzumaki and three Naruto Uzumaki (Tailed Beast Mode) in your deck.
Since you and your partner are sharing the village and battlefield, the uniqueness rule says you cannot both have Naruto Uzumaki in play. If you play Naruto, there is already one in the village so your partner cannot also play one.
