A musician asked me this: Why were all brothers of J.S. Bach also called Johann? Was that a common thing to do in those days? Or was it just a specific family tradition?
I know his father went by Johann, and he had at least one cousin by that name, so maybe his uncle (and his grandfather) was also Johann.
