I wasn't actually looking this up, but...

The collective noun for angelfish is apparently "a company". :D

And a mea culpa - I moaned about William Andrew Philip Bodie being named for "all the princes" when our last Prince William (before HRH The Duke of Cambridge, b. 1982) was King "Silly Billy" or "Sailor Bill" William IV (formerly HRH The Duke of Clarence and St Andrews) who died in 1837, and HRH Prince Andrew The Duke of York was born in 1960, presumably some years after Master Bodie - and named not only for Scotland's patron saint, but Prince Andrew (and a king or two) of Greece on his father's side.

But I was looking something else up, and found a royal I did not know about (to my shame) because he predeceased his father in 1972 and therefore his younger brother inherited. Prince William Henry Andrew Frederick Windsor, born 1941, known as Prince William of Gloucester, grandson of George V, nephew of George VI by his younger brother HRH Prince Henry, The Duke of Gloucester, and cousin of HM The Queen. Bit of an obscure prince to be named after, one would think, but there at any rate.

My apologie to TPTB for doubting them. Sort of.
