Steer is an American word, in England it would be "bullock". Now, we have a unit in the Dragon Pass game which is called something Bullocks, so if they can be named after castrated cattle then you can easily have a person named similarly. By the way, from cowboy movies, I knew that a steer was some kind of cattle, but not necessarily that it was a bullock, so the name "Steer" need not have any implications.
