    Just stumbled upon a realisation.

    Robin hood - stole from the rich by force and gave to the poor

    rob short for robin

    to be robbed, robber....etc...

    The word robber came from this man's actions



    what do you think?

    .....eh not really.

    'The word "rob" came via French from Late Latin words (e.g. deraubare) of Germanic origin, from Common Germanic raub — "theft".'

    The word 'fish' comes from fish fingers because when they found fish fingers in the wild they started to take the fish out and they were all like "hey let's call this fish." That's also why another word for 'breadcrumbs' is 'fingers'.
