Has anyone come across this name in their family tree, especially in Guyana?

I am trying to figure out how an great Uncle came to have this as one of his middle names. His daughter does not even know.

His name was Winston Clinton Otterbein/Outerbein (not certain of spelling) Stephenson. Born in Georgetown, Guyana circa 1909.

While searching the Otterbein name in Guyana, I happened to find another person with the same middle name Otterbein. He was Ivor Otterbein Smith, born in Guyana in 1907 and became the governor of the Cayman Islands during the 1940s.

Coincidently, the name Ivor is also in our family tree. Winston's older brother Clement named one of his sons Ivor.

I would appreciate any helpful suggestions.
