A name that has been passed down for centuries only to those that are worthy to receive it. Recipients must be so attractive women faint constantly, so stylish that they can make tweed and tartan look cool, so smart that previous Alexander Lawries have been conferred upon by Einstein, Rutherford, Newton, Galileo, Hawking and Mozart. They must also be humble which is why they are relatively unknown to most people despite the fact they have single handedly saved the world 47 times. Thus Alexander Lawrie is an honour bestowed only upon those who are perfect specimens of the human race.
My son invented a new kind of fusion reactor, he must be a new Alexander Lawrie.
