Alex's surname

>In the novel Alex has no surname given but at one point, he calls himself "Alexander the Large" in an allusion to his penis after he injected himself with an aphrodisiac. However the film makes De Large an actual surname, revealed while he's in custody being processed for prison.<

In the book, he is addressed by this surname while in Jail. His self-awarded nickname "Alexander the Large" references this.
