There is one other thing to consider.

The name Bert may not be the person's first name as given at
baptism/christening and as it appeared on legal documents or, in this case
on the Home Children list.

How about Albert; Delbert; Egbert; Englebert; Hubert; Norbert; Robert;
Wilbur; to name a few.

Then of course, there were people like my grandfather, whose name was James
Morin, but he was known as "Bert" his entire life.
