Default What's the deal with Nicko McBrain's name?

I've always wondered why he has such a weird name. (I'm assuming it's his stage name).

Mr and Mrs McBrain had a son and decided to call him Nicko??

His name is actually Michael Henry McBrain according to Wiki.

If you're talking about his last name, a quick google search reveals that it's a very old name from Scotland.

Ahhh, thanks, my dudes. His is the only instance of that surname I've ever heard, and because of the "Brain" part, I thought it was a weird stage name.

I did too at first, the last name sounds unusual enough...

I thought it was a cool coincidence that he first played with Maiden on their "Piece of Mind" album.

It may be because in Scottish accent "brain" almost sounds the same as Brian, so he's probably the descendant of Brian really!
