No i couldnt do it ...tried attaching a parish record but that came up as being too big a file too download .

If David Blane was baptises David Kennedy McBlain GALLOWAY

Maybe he links to
Helen Kennedy MCBLAINE
b1822 Dailly
Parents
Kennedy MCBLANE & elizabeth PARKER

thats the only time ive seen it ised as a 1st name

Could we join dots back to Patrick mcBLAINE  who married1714
 Mary KENNEDY b1697

Children of Mary KENNEDY and Patrick MCBLAINE

Jean BLAIN
Marion 1716
David MCBLAINE b.1723 kirkoswold
James McBLAN 1726
Annabel b1732
Jannet McBLAN

In my.family  the naming system include using maternal grandfathers surname for 2nd son as well as or instead of  1st name

My grandmother was Mary Blain Stevenson b1903
Her cousin was Mary Blane Stevenson

Apparently the Mc was dropped in the 1840.s ....
Why ?
