Lakfish in Oregon? #usa

One my great-grandmothers was named Hattie (Yatta) Lakfish. I can find no connection between her family, which lived in the NYC area 1890s-1920s, and a Lakfish contingent in Oregon beginning about the same time. I do have a fair amount of information about Hattie, her parents, and at least one of her brothers, so I'm trying to find the connection, if there is one.

There may be no connection, of course, but the way the name is spelled is not common (perhaps from Lakovich or similar). There are a couple other miscellaneous Lakfish people on Ancestry, but mine and the Oregon ones are the two that come up the most. Any tips would be much appreciated!
