I'm not a software developer, but 2x name= doesn't sound like a great 
idea if you want to make an association.

Also entering data like phone number twice etc. doesn't sound like a 
great idea either, unless the reception actually has a special one (but 
often it's probably just the main number of the POI)

You are missing that those are 2 nodes where there is no connection and 
you aren't interested in any connection. But when you have...

office=accountant
name=company1

office=accountant
name=company2

amenity=reception_desk
name=company1

amenity=reception_desk
name=company2

...you want to make a connection between those offices and receptions. 
The way you suggest tagging here would for example mean you can't give 
the reception desk and individual name anymore. For example when you 
then use the tagging system on a large facility and want to name a 
recption name="Company xyz gate 1" you can't use that system to connect 
it to company xyz.
