And the fact is (this will be a short one because I have to revise for my next HSC exam) that whatever reason Dickens had for naming his Jewish character a name that is not common among Jews and which came from a Christian coworker, Fagin's Jewishness and profession came from Ikey Solomon and/or Henry Worms; I think it was Ikey Solomon.
