Try the Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences. https://oeis.org/ It found many answers to your question: a sequence of interest for some reason that begins 1,2,8. In fact, there are 2,210 matches. The first one that comes up: A000165, the "double factorial (2n)!!", where 0!! = 1, 2!! = 2, 4!!=8. If THAT is your sequence, then the next one is 6!!=48
