Any chance of a name please

This Opuntia came from Rene Geissler many years ago. It still has the label that has faded from yellow to white and no writing left. It's in a 15cm pot and has looked good at one time but is showing its age and needs re-starting. The segments are about 9cms long and spines are a good size in relation to the plant size. Any suggestions for a name would be welcome.

I’ll second that. Does it flower for you?
