JRI Poland #Poland Naming a newborn after a sibling who died earlier #poland

I am searching my maternal family KOENIGSBUCH from
Brzesko, Galicia and am making a steady progress.

Recently I came twice across a phenomenon of a
child(male) which died very early, within a year from
birth, and then the next child which was born was
given the same name.

I would like to hear how common such custom was,if at
all.

Thanks.
