Re: The Bruce - but Why?

While there is a thread about Robert the Bruce still active can anyone tell
me why the said Robert was called Robert THE Bruce.  One hears of others
called e.g.  Finlay OF Tannochbrae, but why  ' THE Bruce'.

I'm sure the answer will be perfectly simple and straightforward, but its
one of those little things which have escaped me so far.

Thank you
Judith Harper
