JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Named for more than one person #general

My cousin was named for both of her grandmothers, both of whom were
Anna. But instead of namiing her Anna (since one of her grandmothers
was still living), her parents named her Diane (Di indicating two).

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?
