What’s In A Name?

Idea shamelessly thieved from Marysia, I present the meaning of my name:

Alasdair: Scottish form of Alexander, meaning “defender of men”.
Nicholas: From the Greek “Nikolaos”, meaning “victory of the people”.
Watson: Son of Wat. Wat is a medieval contraction of Walter, meaning “ruler of the army”, so “Son of the ruler of the Army”.

So, broadly, my name means that we’d all be better off if the rest of you just did what I said.
