Friday Fun: Are there any interesting things your name spells with the letters rearranged?

elizabeth_jones Community Leader Jul 15, 2021

I enjoy word games and puzzles and anagrams are one of my favorites. Can you rearrange the letters of your name to spell anything interesting? 

 

My name is Elizabeth Jones and my name spells botanize. I do love to study plants in their natural habitat, so this seems like the perfect fit. 

 

How about you?

Ah, asked of someone who spends too much time on crosswords...

The name I use all the time has a few, but only one really stands out - I sometimes get called Oscar because, well, "Bin Grouch"

My full name gives us stuff like:

  • Isochronal bug
  • Hog binoculars
  • Bonus oligarch
  • Bah, Colourings

I can get Mangrove Bend as long as I use Mo and don't get a "q" involved.

@elizabeth_jones it totally sounds like an amazing house on the water in Costa Rica.

If I go by David (which I extremely rarely do, please don't call me David), I'm Viola Dad!

But everyone calls me Dave, so I get weird things like Avoid Ale, which I would never do. 🍺

That is the best one so far, for me.

"Erudite" is a word that I would try to use if I was ever asked to write a reference for you, it's a superb fit.  I never realised it was part of a name anagram too! 

 

ooooo nice

REALLY RED.

(Which is appropriate, because I have the Asian gene that makes my alcohol-processing enzyme non-functional.)

First name makes "NO LYCRA", which is just fortuitous as that has always been my game plan.

Well, there's apparently no anagrams for my name - and you have to be very careful doing anything with the last name hahaha. So I'll just switch the first letters and be Fohn Junk.  Somehow it's probably appropriate.  :-)
