Meaning of name Menachem Mendel #general


Dahn Cukier
 

Hello,

I don't know if this will be answered, but I have come
across a tombstone where the name of
the deceased is "Menachem Mendal". The
entry in the local histories calls the person "Mendal".

Question: Is this the same person? The dates match.
Why would there be different names? Is Menachem an honorary
such as Mister, Doctor, etc.
