I am not related. I pick postings at random and answer them.


You might want to check to see if they followed the Old Irish Naming System.

If so, they would have named the second born son after Bridget's father.




OLD IRISH NAMING SYSTEM


Sons

1st son was named after the father's father

2nd son was named after the mother's father

3rd son was named after the father

4th son was named after the father's eldest brother

5th son was named after the mother's eldest brother

Daughters

1st daughter was named after the mother's mother

2nd daughter was named after the father's mother

3rd daughter was named after the mother

4th daughter was named after the mother's eldest sister

5th daughter was named after the father's eldest sister

If the father remarries after his first wife dies, the first daughter born to this new marriage is often named after the deceased wife, and includes her whole name.

If a child dies young then their name is then used for the next child of the same sex, thereby keeping alive the name of the relative who they are ‘named for’
