What is your question? I have the uncle of my husband who named all five sons isaac, the same name with differing middle names. Many latinos use jose or jesus or maria as a first name with a different middle name. Many families named a child after a person for financial expectationss or for continuation of line then the child dies and the name is recycled as for the reasons above and as rememberance or forgetfulness of the pain a death caused the parents. There are many other valid reasons for this phenomenom. It could be that there is dispute on which John is the son so both added untill / if evidence is found of a definitive nature....
