This really and truly is the name of a building at the St Andrews
University in St Andrews, Scotland.

Mr. Butts was insistent his name come first.

Found this as an explanation: "The Butts were where archery was
practiced and a Wynd is a narrow lane or alley". It's the name of a
street as well as a building. So I think it's safe to assume that the
building was named after the street, and the street name means that it
was once an alley where archers used to practice target shooting.
Whether or not that's true, in the modern (slang) use of both words
it's still one of my two favourite place names that I've seen in
Scotland! (The other is a street named Pocklaw Slap in Eyemouth.)
