Who is the only person in Tanach whose father and father-in-law are two different people and have the exact same name?


Noah. Both his father and father-in-law were named "Lemech".

  • Only according to those who hold that Noach married Na'amoh bas Lomech. – Joshua Pearl Jan 1 '18 at 12:21

Did the sh'vatim marry their half-sisters? What about Kayin and Hevel?
