Apparently there was this chap called Guppy who named the Guppy fishes after him. Mr Guppy in Bleak House is apparently a parody of him. It would be nice to that Mr Guppy's Cultured Left Foot of Leicester City and England fame is also related.

Apparently they are all related (the people, not the fish). A long time ago I went out with a lass called Guppy, and her family tell of a story of when her mother overheard another person in a bank queue being referred to as Mr.Guppy. She introduced herself and over a coffee they worked out how they were related. The common ancester being 4 generations back.
