Is it possible that a first given is also used as a middle name in the same family?

Eg. Would a sibling called Juozas have a brother called Jurgis-Juozas?

Is that likely?

Thank you

Regards

Maureen

There was tradition to give two names in Lithuania until second half of XX century. One name was national, second - the Christian one, for example Algirdas Mykolas, Vytautas Jonas, Mindaugas Juozas, Gediminas Jurgis,... Names Jurgis and Juozas both are Christian, so such combination is'nt very presumable.

Thank you Aurupaitis,

The person that I was researching was actually called Jurgis-Juozas. Well he was according to the call up records from Vilnius Archives.

I was wondering if he could have had a brother called Juozas.

Thanks

Regards
