Okay, now I'm beginning to get rather frustrated. And I need to settle something. The majority of baby name sites I look through, lists Drake as Old English/English for Dragon, but a rare few sites list it as also meaning or only meaning Duck.

There is a debate going on in my family right now, I and my fiancee say it means Dragon and my Dad says it means Duck, and regardless of any other meanings people will assume, Duck as the meaning.

The reason I'd like to sort this out, is because the baby I'm carrying is a boy, and we've decided on Alexander Drake as a name.

I need to know the educated view on this. If anybody can help me out, it would be appreciated.
