==Let's start with a king of Israel named Menahem. Menahem means "console"How strong an indication would this be? An ancestor of mine was
"Menachem Arje" in Hebrew (as far as I know, just "Leo(n)" in day to day
use). Would this be a good reason to suspect that an elder brother, his
father or uncle (or ...) died shortly before he was born (or, that he
was born close to tisha b'av)? Or was Menachem often given as a name for
other reasons too?
