Would a later born child have the same name as an earlier deceased child? #names


Hello, I found the for the birth of Salomen Zalman Fisch in 1882 to my great-grandparents Avigdor Fisch and Reizl Rudner.   However, in 1895 there is another record for the birth of Salomen Zalman Fisch to the same parents.  I do know that the second Salomen Fisch survived until the Shoah.   Would parents name a second child the same name if the first child died perhaps shortly after birth?
