As mine goes jonnys walkers has nothing to do with Scotch. My first name is John. The second name comes from in a previous life I owned, trained and showed Tennessee Walking Horses. Thus the name jonnys walkers.

In essence the first true Military Police

The term Praetorian derived from the tent of the commanding general or praetor of a Roman Army in the field—the Praetorium. They were an elite recruitment of Roman citizens and Latins. The emperors also often employed a small separate unit of bodyguards, distinct from and, in a degree, as a counterbalance to the Praetorian Guard. It was a habit of many Roman generals to choose from the ranks a private force of soldiers to act as guards of the tent or the person. They consisted of both infantry and cavalry. In time, this cohort came to be known as the cohors praetoria, and various notable figures possessed one, including Julius Ceasar, Mark Antony and Augustus (Octavian). As Caesar discovered with the Legio X Equestris, a powerful unit more dangerous than its fellow legions was desirable in the field. When Augustus became the first ruler of the Roman Empire in 27 BC, he decided such a formation was useful not only on the battlefield but in politics also. Thus, from the ranks of the legions throughout the provinces, Augustus recruited the Praetorian Guard.

Actually I thought carpenter, or pottery maker. So I Google'd the term and this is what I found.

Great thread. Mine comes from a company I opened in the mid 80's. My first and last initial is "S", I wanted the company name to reflect my name and didn't like S&S because I didn't give out stamps. (some will remember this) So, it became Essness. I've since sold that company and married my girl friend from the mid 80's who's initials are now both "S" as well. Seemed appropriate to just keep the name.
