Idea of where Surname came fromEdit
- I believe that his surname is multifaceted in its meaning. In addition to being derived from his motto, I think it's also supposed to be a play on Aristotle's "Doctrine of the Mean", which was one of his writings on ethics contained in the larger work of Nicomachean Ethics. --King Starscream (talk) 14:40, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
Ichiro Shinji?1642? Edit
Aristotle Means' Japanese name is Ichiro Shinji,which sounds like 1642,the year of death of Galileo Galilei.The pole of globe maybe also related to him,not only Aristotle.It is so funny that Aristotle supported Geocentrism when Galileo Galilei supported Heliocentrism.

An interesting quote Edit
So, in the latter part of the trial, Means says the following line a few times:
|Prof. Means always means what he says and says what he means by all means!|
