Even in Europe this was done. The idea, though, is to add a second
name for the child. My great grandmother's first child, Beyla, died
in infancy. My grandmother was then named Pesia Beyla to avoid
having her die young. She lived to 98. The same was the case with
my mother but she also had a second name. She lived to 96.
