Robertson Davies- Canadian author of notable novels, essays, plays, and much more, from the mid-1900's. One would assume his name was given because he was the son of a Robert, however, Robertson was technically his middle name (William Robertson Davies), and his father's full name was William Rupert Davies, so no explanations there.
