Recently I came twice across a phenomenon of a child (male) which died
very early, within a year >from birth, and then the next child which
was born was given the same name.

I would like to hear how common such custom was, if at all.

Good question. I'd be interested in hearting the answers as I've come
across the same thing or variants.....like Fajgla Sora died and then
the next child is named Sora Fajgla.
