Re: Would a boy and a girl in the same family ever both be given essentially the same names? #ukraine #names

My Galicia family followed the traditional approach. The first male born to each sibling would carry my deceased grandfather’s name. Since my mother only had daughters, as the first born, I carried his name. At the time, and long after, he was my only deceased grandparent.
