What’s in a Name?

Hypothetical questions of the following flavor at times amuse me:

  1. If you had a theme song to be playing when you entered a room, what would it be?
  2. If you were to switch places with any actor/actress/professional athlete, who would it be?
  3. If you were a superhero or villain, what would be your name?
  4. If you were to have a blog, what would you name it?

Oh wait, that last one is possible whereas the others, not so much, and when I was debating about what to name my blog, I decided that it had to have something to do with Brothers.  This being because most of these stories, knowledge, opinions, musings, etc. will be coming from experiences shared with some iteration of a Brother.  Either my own brother, my brother-in-law, my brother’s brother-in-law, my brother-in-law’s brothers, or someone who I consider “like a brother”.  I also think the connotation of brother has weighty importance and meaning.  To take it further, “brothers” carries even more significance and connotation.

For the second part of the name, I am taking a google found definition for the words “en route” to give my explanation.

en route: During the course of a journey; on the way

Thus, my answer to the 4th question above is now obvious.  And though I will never switch places with Ryan Giggs, or don a cape with my name on it, hopefully during the life of this blog I will be able to more fully answer why I chose the name, and illustrate how I (and we) are continually en route.  With that, let it begin!
