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

I cannot match the example of five times for giving subsequent children the same name, but again using my Edinburgh Browns, there were three Rachel Leahs in a row. This seemed to be more likely in first cousin and double first cousin marriages, where it does appear that children were less likely to survive in their early years.
