Ecro as a first name

I am working with a hard to read death certificate. It appears the father's name is Ecro. I've never heard of this. Has anyone ever run across a first name of Ecro? I'm also trying to decipher the last name. Ugh!

All of the "Ecro"s from Finland and Estonia are probably cases where a handwritten source has been misinterpreted by whoever transcribed it and did not have the necessary background knowledge to know that the first name could only be "Eero".

Happy to help with anything regarding Finland.
