Subject: Named for More than One Person?

Could someone please tell me if Jewish children are ever given a given-name for
more than one person? My Hebrew name is Feige. My mother's grandmother and my
father's grandmother were both named Feige. Both died many years before my birth,
although I don't know the years. I have no way to know which one I was named for,
but is it possible or likely that the intention was to honor both?
