I don't know a lot about fish but the fish I did have in the past was Banded Convicts and that definitely looks just like them. Fun little fish, they are quite interesting to watch. Mine kept having babies though. :o

It does look like a severum - I have a young gold one, and that has exactly the same shape as mine.

Definatly looks like a young severum. The shape and faded bars are a dead give away. Convicts have more distinct black and white to thier bars even when young.

Yes, now that I've seen it in a pet shop, it IS in fact a Severum also known as the Deacon Cichlid.
