Thanks to everyone who answered my previous post! I now have a follow-up question:

I know that men sometimes took the name "Chaim" after the death of their father, but did they ever do so after the death of a son/child? In the scenario I am researching, Kelman (the second child on the list) died prior to the birth of the third child, Henoch. If men did change their names after the death of a son/child could this explain the name difference?

Thanks again!
