They can be helpful for genealogy research. They usually held a tradition for this in Scotland.

No wonder there were son many cousins born at the same time with the same names.

I have William's, George's and Henry's all through one family plus a few more names i add when i cant find them.
The other family dont seem to have any pattern with their names besides no one knew them by their real names just by their nicknames... Jack was actually Henry and Pat was actually Edwin or was it the other way round :confused: will have to check my papers.. it was a pain anyway.
