In my family data base I have two brothers with the same English name. One is the oldest in the sibship who was already married when he arrived in the states with his wife's family. He was Sam in English and Simcha in Hebrew.
The other was the youngest and he was a baby when he arrived with his parents. He was Zalman in whatever and Sam in English. There was at least eighteen years difference in age between them.
