I have so many names on the tree, but I think this is one of mine - if not it stood out as it was a first name.

I'll try to go back and have a look but can't say when, though I will keep it in mind.
Kind regards

There's an extended family in east lancs with the surname fish who give it to children as a first name as well. There was even a "Fish Fish Fish".
