if it's after a name, it's used to show that the person holds an oxford degree.

Just thought I'd second that so you have the right answer.

Cantab would mean a Cambridge degree

If a person has 'Oxon' after their name, it means they have been awarded a degree by the University of Oxford (presumably a law degree for a barrister, although this has no impact on the 'oxon' suffix).

I didn't even realise that it was two men before I took a second look!

For future reference, 'Dunelm' after someone's name means they did their degree at Durham and 'Exon' means they did it at Exeter. I think there are only a few universities in the country who are allowed to do that
Although I think the best response to this came from one of my friends, who said 'does that mean that a Liverpool John Moores graduate is obliged to put 'Moron' after their name?!'
