Confusing Names

I understand German naming patterns. They can be crazy, naming their sons and daughters with similar names. Makes me nuts. But there is a pattern or a reason. 

But this one takes the cake. Two brothers in this family, hubby's side, one named David and one named Dezso, both born in Hungary. David was born in 1875 and Dezso in 1886. David emigrated to US in 1903 aboard the SS Kronland, and Dezso in 1905 aboard the Kroonland. By 1910 when he is married, Dezso is now known as Dave. And he uses Dave till death except for his original declaration of intent. Why? Why not choose some other name?
