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

I have examples of this in my Edinburgh Brown family. My great grandparents' two eldest sons Julius and George died as infants in the 1870's. They then had twin girls whom they named Julia and Georgina (the latter also died young). My great grandparents were first cousins who had arrived from Vishtinetz in Suwalki Gubernia in NE Poland in 1870, and married in Edinburgh. The two sons were named after the fathers of each parent (who were brothers) Jacob and Gershon Joseph Brown (Brin).
