Szmul vs Szlama #names

Sandrine S

Dear Jewishgeners, 

I wonder if it is common for a same individual to be named Szlama in his birth record and then Szmul in all other records (marriage + death record). Knowing that in each document the birth date is approximative I cannot be 100% sure it is the same person... Any clue about given name-swapping ?
