Actually a kipe is fish related, it is a basket for catching fish, also slang for stealing. 8)

You mean KYPE.  ;D

You are correct, but it was originally spelled 'kipe'. The modern accepted spelling is due to a mispelling propogated by Francis Day an icthyologist in the 1800's. He is also the same guy who propogated the now accepted misspelling of char for the original 'charr' see the journal Copeia.

The original spelling was kip, meaning hook, and was used by the Scotch to name the lower jaws of male salmon. A related old English term is kipper, referring to spawning male salmon.  My ancestry is Scottish,  known for their drinking and fighting. ;D
