Re: Could Shlomo and Sholom be brothers? #belarus

Shlomo and Shalom are different names and could conceivably be used
in the same family, it seems to me-though somewhat doubtful. Shlomo
is Solomon, as in the king, and though the root is the same as that
of Shalom, it's not the same name!

In doing further research I have found that both Sholom and Shlomo mean
"man of peace". Does that mean the names are the same? If so, then the
two men could not be brothers.
Does anyone know about these names?
