Why is Robert the Bruce "the Bruce"?

Robert was from the Scottish clan "Bruce."  It's sort of a last name.  It would be like saying Donald the Trump or Mila the Kunis or Joe the on-the-way-out Flacco.

A quick Google turns up: "(Scottish Gaelic: Brùs) is a Scottish clan from Kincardine in Scotland. It was a royal house in the 14th century, producing two kings of Scotland and a disputed High King of Ireland, Edward Bruce.

...it was to distinguish him from Robert the Duck, another Scottish popular hero.

How very dare you.....there was never...I say never....a Robert the Duck. ?

Touch not our proud history you naughty person......I can feel in my water that you're destined for a very hot place....oh yes.

Yes, he was of Norman/Gaelic heritage as far as I can make out.

...is this what it's like there in Scotland on a daily basis ? Where can I buy some plaid tights like those ?
