There's been many rumors and different versions of their name origin,
but Stephen Christian said the "real" name came from the
Everything in Its Right Place
"There are several stories that have circulated on the internet, but the actual story is when I was in
college my favorite band was Radiohead; on one of their songs off the record Kid A there is a
background noise on the song "Everything in Its Right Place"
(about 2 minutes 31 seconds into the song).
While Thom is singing 'try to say' I always thought the background noise sounded like 'Anberlin',
I always thought that Anberlin would have been a great band name and well...it was/is."
