Re: "Meyer Aryeh" and "Meyer Leib" - Could They be One and the Same? #general

I would say that it certainly is possible. For example, in my own
family, two great-uncles' (brothers) gravestones noted them variously
as son of "Ze'ev Wolf" and son of "Velvel" (in Russian census records,
he was also listed as "Volko").

Similarly, my great-grandfather's gravestone notes him as son of
Shimon Leib; his brother's gravestone notes his father's name as
Shimon Yehudah.

Good luck in your genealogical endeavors!
