Slave Names

Surnames: Daniel
I understand slaves often took their last names from their masters. Was it common for them to also take their first names?

I have a relative named Isham Daniel who was a slave. I found a slave owner by the same name located in the same area my ancestor was from. The slave schedule lists a mulatto male of the appropriate age under the slave owner Isham Daniel. What are the chances it is my ancestor?
