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

One possibility is that one sibling was named after the ancestor, and the other sibling was born on or about the 9th of Av.  "Menachem" and "Nechamah" connote "comfort", and the month of Av is often called "Menachem Av".

I know many Orthodox families, my own and others, in which brothers and sisters have similar names, for example:
Menachem and Nechamah
Baruch and Bracha
Yehuda and Yehudis.
