Band Name Origins:

  • Band member Stephen Christian has offered the explanations that he planned naming his first daughter Anberlin and that the name was a modification of the phrase "and Berlin" from a list of cities Christian wanted to visit. The one story that Christian asserts is true, however, is that he heard the word in the background noise of the Radiohead song "Everything in Its Right Place". Submitted by: Robert D. Arndt Jr.
  • The band decided to name themselves after the second wife of King Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn. When pronounced, it can be miswritten as "anberlin". Submitted by: mike
