1: It isn't a rumour it is a fact
2: It wasn't an angry guy, it was the landlord of the building Nintendo used in North America. Apparently a great guy also.
3: They only used his first name for the character, not a surname.

His full name is Mario Mario. This was confirmed over a decade ago.
Mario has no last name, the film made it up on the misconception that their naming was done in the Western way of calling people by their last name, in Japan they refer to Mario's first name when calling them Mario Brothers, not a second name.
