What is an ANAGRAM?

As usual, wikipedia provides the answer;

An anagram is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once.

Meaning, any word or phrase that exactly reproduces the letters in another order is an anagram.

Example:

The letters in the word GARDEN can be rearranged to form the anagram, DANGER.

An anagram can be created manually or by-hand but is too taxing and time-consuming. I searched online for an anagram creator software and the best I could find is the Anagram Genius. You can download a free trial version at their website here.

I immediately toyed with it and naturally entered my full name first.

After clicking on the search button, a number of phrases appeared but most are incomprehensible. I weeded out one phrase which stood out.

“Halo on a hairy thinker.” I think that pretty much describes me.

I’m hairy because I’m “balbon”, I’m a thinker because I’m an intellectual and I have a halo because I’m an angel. Hehehe… Oops! Wala’ng papalag, blog ko ito!

I tried with other names and these are what I found:

President Gloria Macapagal ArroyoI’m a derogatory or appealing rascal.

Vice-President Noli de CastroVendetta inspires crocodile.

Joseph Ejercito EstradaRejected as a poorish jet.

Do the anagrams match with the personality of those people? Hehehe… I had fun with it. Try it also. 😉

    Reading about Anagrams reminds me about the movie ‘Da vinci code’

    What an artistic movie it was ?

    Do you guys remember there was an anagram in this movie ? Can you recall it ?
    Ok, i ll tell you…

    It was “O, Draconian devil” And remember what it meant ?

    it meant “Leonardo da vinci” !!

    Very well written post here.
    Anagrams are a part of our life. Sometimes they are just for fun but sometimes they have a deep cryptic meaning !!
