Probably named after William Buckley, with a nice double entendre for no extra cost.

Thanks! I'll keep an eye out for your post and will be happy to have some insight additional to information already shared by @Coxsackie and PoP.
I'm narrowing down my choices and at this stage am leaning toward another Akubra. Either the Hampton style I linked previously or a second Stylemaster in the lighter heritage fawn colour. Wearing my Stylemaster in loden (actually a chocolate brown) today, I have been re-evaluating the brim. While it is a substantial brim, on my broad frame, it's not overly wide in proportional terms. While Cox recommended a narrower brimmed style, I'm not sure what the reference point was (@Coxsackie, could you possibly take a moment to clarify?), and while the Hampton suits me, the proportions of the Stylemaster are probably better for my proportions. Off to the hat store today to try on the Hampton and refresh my memory of how it compares to my Stylemaster. However, I'll hold off buying for now.
Thanks again to Cox and PoP for the advice offered regarding my hat purchase. In the end, PoP's perspective was the decider for me, along with some advice from the three assistants I spoke with over the course of three visits to the hat store. I decided against a second earth toned hat in the end. Mainly because the lighter coloured Hampton did wash me out a bit and iI couldn't imagine an outfit I own that wouldn't work as well or better with my chocolate brown Stylemaster versus the Hampton. While the shape of the Hampton suited ok, I feel the Stylemaster trumped it, as did all three assistants. Having faffed around enough, I opted to buy a second Stylemaster in grey for wear with more urban looks, or any blue/grey cloth for that matter, regardless of 'heritage'. Will keep wearing my dark brown Stylemaster with tweeds and a healthy dose of attitude. Ribbon versus leather band? Who really cares? It was pause for thought, and I'm glad I did ask here, but don't feel the presence of a ribbon band should actually deter me from defiling the coherence of an otherwise country fit. Brim too wide for a country jacket - again, be damned, I thought it better sense to choose the hat that suited my broader proportions. Compared with my frame, the Stylemaster is not a particularly wide brim, and the Hampton ran the risk of being slightly too stingey, giving consideration to my height. Besides the occasional iGent in the wild, who could possibly call me out on this? Oh, wait, I'm here on a forum with all you iGents...
I'd be very surprised if it wasn't named for him.
I've only ever seen that version of the origin on the Wikipedia entry for William Buckley, who is another plausible inspiration.
I doubt he'd be welcome in the area with his criminal background.
brand new toyota corolla. One of my friend just purchased the 2016 model(23.5K SX)- its simply beautiful. Interior is really cool. review
