Can anyone tell me why parents would give so many of their children the same name? For instance Hugh Dewar, born Glenelg Scotland in 1815 and married twice both to 2 different Catherine MacMillans. Must have liked that name too. However, they had 15 children -7 girls and 8 boys. the boys were named Angus, Roderick, Donald Hugh, John Hugh, Lachlan Hugh(Red), Hugh/Ewen, Malcolm Hugh, and Allan Hugh. I have run across this before in my Father's family-he had 4 brothers with the name Peter in it. To me it must be significant.. Can anyone help? Thanks. Mary Bourke
