Owen Owen - help please!

Here's one that I need some help with:

Owen Owen

That's all I have! Surprisingly, this is a very common name.

the CWGC has 3 results for Owen Owen with Liverpool in the 'other information' these men are:
Owen Owen
Owen Hugh Owen and
Owen Rawson Owen

Assuming that the family would have included a middle name on the memorial, this gives us only one result, Owen Owen who was in the Mercantile Marine and was lost with the SS Stuart Prince on 22 March 1917, a cargo ship which was torpedoed.
This Owen Owen was living with his parents (Amy and William) in Wales at the time of the 1911 census but was married and living in Liverpool by the time of his death.

This is based on several large assumptions though so I am looking for more information before continuing.
