There is, and it's called 'find'.  Its often installed by default (RedHat
and Debian usually do).  Do a 'man find' in order to see all the options,
but you probably want to do something like:

find /some/path -iname index.html


find /var/www -iname index.html

which will return, e.g:


for each index.html it finds.
