My swedish family that I have located, seemed to have named their daughter the same as the last. I noticed that also went for males. They would change up the middle name, just enough to show they weren't the same person. For example, Hanna Anna Persdotter and Hanna Ann Persdotter My great great Aunts.
Does anyone know the reason for that?
