If one's ancestor in Zagare, Lithuania born in mid 1800s had the forename Kalonymus (not the famous tea merchant, Wissotzky!), is it likely that the person was descended from the famous Kalonymus family - or was it a "common" Jewish name akin to Abraha, Moshe or Jacob and nothing special should be read into it?
