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 […]
