I have also checked Kaddish (which seems more likely to me).
Any English equivalents of Kadish?<<<
my answer is: The male first name Kadish is a Jewish middle age name.
Normal it was used when after a lot of girls , a boy coming and he was
able to said Kadish when his father die. Kadish mean the Jewish
mourner's prayer. In the fifty's was a minister in the Israel government
with the name Kadish Luz (1895 - 1972) and you can find this name beck in
a lot of streets in Israel.
