I was also wondering about how to determine the number after the name?

Wouldn't mercury have a charge of 3+ and not 1+?

Yes, the oxidation number of Hg would be (III) instead of (I), as the two Fluoride ions make the overall charge -2, which requires a +3 oxidation state from the Hg to make the compound +1.
