Yes, girls have been named for their deceased mother.
Going through the birth records of Zuentersbach Germany, looking for the
children of my GGgrandmother, I was surprised to discover the birth in
1858 of her daughter with her same first name. I immediately flipped to
the death records, and sure enough, found my GGgrandmother had died 11
days after the birth.
