Thanks to all who responded to my query about baby boys and girls
being named after deceased relatives of the opposite sex. All
said, "Yes, it happened."
Possibly more would respond if the subject of the posting had not changed.
Keeping the original subject makes it easier to find for other and future
researchers.

Now, it was not only Custom to name children after relatives, but anyone who
had a great influence on the family, such as a Rebbi, teacher, nanny,
step mother/father etc. So children's names are not just based on members
or the family. So don't rule out anyone whose given name doesn't match the
family you know.
