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

This was a normal practice in the Jewish community of the UK in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. If a child was born and died, a later child would be named the same. I have several examples in my own family. There are even cases when more than one child died, a third child would still be given the same name/s.
