Names Meir Isaac and Yitzhak Isaac #general


My great-grandfather's tombstone lists his given name as Solomon bar Meir Isaac.
A presumed relative with our same surname gives his name as Joseph bar Yitzhak Isaac.
My question is, could Meir Isaac and Yitzhak Isaac (the same name but in Yiddish
and Hebrew) be the same person? This would make Solomon and Joseph brothers.
