Anagrams of your name

Post by JohnDurvin » December 6th, 2012, 5:01 pm

So yeah...I'm a word dork. A few years ago, I sat down and tried to find all the words I could make out of the letters in my name; I didn't get many, but that's because my full name (John David Durvin) is only fifteen letters, three of them D's. I'm proudest of "hadji" and "Jovian"; the longest I can find is "android".
I know there's some more word nerds out there--anybody have better luck?
And in case you're curious, here's the full list:

To illustrate how awful my name is for anagram games, please note that I just checked out my girlfriend's name, and in about a minute came up with "alchemist", "screech", "Heracles", "chimera", "treacle", "creamiest", "cheese", "hashish", "chemical"...

Impressive list, John.

I got irma. That's the only word I can get from my name....I think.

It's a waste of time and nothings going to happen from knowing our name's anagram.

Hmm, you know, your post didn't add anything positive to this forum. The people here are all respectful and pleasant, even when we disagree. If you don't like a post, you certainly don't have to comment on it. Just ignore it, or if you find that you simply cannot ignore, at least find some courteous way of imparting your thoughts.

I'm lucky to have three vowels in my name (my first name only!) so I came up with quite a few.

shale, leash, hales, aisle, heals, seal, sale, sail, lies, leis, ales, ails, shea, lase, isle

When I add my last name, well the options are much more.

But here are my favorites:
smellier, schlemiel, measlier, slimier, hearse

My First/Last legal name spells A LOT because I have three As, two Ms, D, S, U, E... Amanda Boyle(pen name) doesn't have a lot of "normal" words in it.

Oooo, now I think I"m going to start looking for a pen name that's an anagram. That sounds like fun. Although I'll probably stop when all I've come up with is Shara (from Sarah, of course) and my head's hurting.

I can't do it! I'm a failure at anagrams! Also, I didn't try very hard. Anyone else want to? First name is ALISON.
