real name[edit]

somehow i got the impression his correct name might be Гүррагчаа . Or at least this one yields the most google hits when combined for what he got famous for : [1]16:03, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

A bit strange wrt. vowel harmony, but then it may have tibetan or sanskrit roots. I almost expected the majority of Google hits to be some Russian spelling, which is often different from the Mongolian original. In this case though, at least the first page of results features mostly .mn sites, so the result is probably authoritative. --Latebird 14:19, 6 June 2007 (UTC)
I explicitely googled for Gurragchaa with ү (Russian has only у) and in space (space yields a lot of pages about his clan name). IMO the vowel harmony thing might be explained with 'gur' and 'ragchaa' being two different words - that would also explain the, otherwise rare, double-'r'.
