Searching for the meaning for Jeff Pendergraph’s new last name

In case you missed it, the Spurs’ Jeff Pendergraph will now go by the name Jeff Ayres, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

What does the name ‘Ayres’ even mean? I ran a simple Google search to find out.

First result, from Wikipedia:

Ayres is Keith Kenniff’s third album under his Helios moniker. This is the only Helios album that contains vocals. There is also a remastered, instrumental version of “Ayres”.

Far out!

From surnamedb.com:

The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Henry Ayer, which was dated 1273, in the “Hundred Rolls of Lincolnshire”, during the reign of King Edward 1, known as “The Hammer of the Scots”, 1272 – 1307. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax.

“The Hammer of the Scots” has so much potential as a nickname. Meanwhile, Poll Tax sounds like a proper punishment for Andray Blatche.

And finally, from kabalarians.com:

The name of Ayres creates a quick, analytical, and clever mind; you are creative, versatile, original, and independent.

Tim Duncan would be impressed.

Patience is not your forte.

Meh, can’t win ‘em all.

You appreciate change and travel, and the opportunity to meet and mix with others, and to influence them with your creative ideas.

This explains playing on three teams in four seasons.

When under strain, tension could affect the stomach and solar plexus.

Oh.

There is a tendency for you to worry.

My belly hurts.
