Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Custom not to marry a woman with mother's given name #galicia

Dear Genners and Siggers,

I am almost sure that I have seen a previous discussion about a
custom (Minhag) mainly Poland (Galicia) not to marry a woman whose
given name is similar to the bridegroom mother's given name. I
looked at the SIG and Jewishgen Archives but apparently did not
construct the right combination of search words.

Would appreciate receiving a clue or a brief explanation.
