On The Topic Of Names

Because of Wil Wheaton's post at his blog who wished that his name could be turned into a cool analog like Cherie Priest, I decided to check out anagrams of our own names on Wordsmith.com.

So as not to get too short a word in the anagram like "a" or "an" and have too many results returned, I set the maximum number of words to be 2 and the minimum number of letter in each word to be 3.

For my own name I entered "Khairul Hisham" because I get zero results from my full name and I entered Ain's full name without the " binti".

Apparently I am MAHARISHI HULK and Ain is NONHUMAN RITUAL. Cool beans.

When the maximum number of words is increased to 3, I also get HIM RAKISH HULA (can one be dashing and stylish with a hula) and HUH SHARIA MILK (so, drink up) - none of which are particularly funny or makes a whole lot of sense - but Ain gets to have awesome anagrams like MANUAL RHINO NUT (what do you need to do manually to a rhino's nut?), INHUMAN LOAN RUT (Ah Long or what?), HAUL AMNION RUNT (I'm going to have to draw this) and MONAURAL HIT NUN (cause maybe, nuns do not usually produce chart-topping hits in stereo audio).

Sadly, Irfan's name yielded no results even after some tweaking of the settings.

Anyone else want to give it a shot with their own names?
