gives some of his own children the same names as the names of his
young step-brothers. =========

Just a guess, but given the age differences, e.g. time passage, it's
possible that an ancestor(s) to the father of both sets of sons is
the name source; someone who'd died by the time the youngest were
born, and who was important to the older son or the whole family as
well.
