interesting and weird and very common....

It could have happened in this way even several years after the death of
the first child...boy or girl.... The next child of the same sex as the
deceased child would be named the same... HOWEVER, they were not always
called by the name....

As an example, in our family Mary died... Then Mary II was born...
Called always MAYME...She wrote Mary on official papers, but was always
called Mayme....
