JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Jewish Given Names - Yitzhak, Isaac #general

The recent discussions on Jewish given names (Yosef Dov, Dov Joseph) has
raised a few questions. I though I had seen a Web table of Jewish given
name frequencies for certain locations and/or time periods. Can anyone
direct me to this?

Also, I recently found my GGM's matzevah (died 1911 and buried in Pittsburgh
PA) and was a little surprised to see "Sarah Rebeka bat Yitzhak Isaac".
Even though both names are extremely common I have not seen the combination
very often. Any thoughts on why both versions are given in this case?
