I am informed that Douglas in Hebrew means "Distinguished Man".

And Urban Dictionary has a rather different definition!

I have been offered ephemera relating to Admiral Douglas's house Seafield in Walmer. Would anyone be interested in this?
Admiral Robert Gordon Douglas(1829-1910), descendant of James, 4th Earl of Morton, was the son of Commander John Douglas, JP, RN, and Robina MacDonell. He had at least one son, James Sholto Gordon Douglas, and a daughter Madeline Gordon Douglas.
