My records show of number of brothers with the same first name. Usually
Johann or Johannes or some other form of John. They then went by the middle
name or another name.
Same with sisters being given the first name of Maria or some form of Mary.
They then went by another name.
Didn't George Foreman (boxer and grill guy) name his kids George or some
form of George?

During the 1700's was it common to give two living brothers the same
name? Mine are from Scotland. Thanks
