Fact of the Day: Robert Bat Man

While Batman fans obviously know the character's real name is Bruce Wayne, many don't know why he was named Bruce. The name comes from Robert the Bruce (officially Robert I) who was King of Scotland. He was a popular warrior-king who successfully led Scotland to defeat England in its War of Independence.

Bruce is a very common given name in Canada too because of our large Scottish heritage in this country.
