Hi, I'm Laura from And I'm going to talk about how to make an anagram from names. An anagram is when you rearrange the letters in a word. To make another word. And the secondary part of it, is to comment on the first word. With your second word. That doesn't always happen. But that's another way that anagrams are often used. So an example, might be the name Stephen, spelled with a V. You can rearrange that word to spell the word, Events. So if you're someone who loves planning events. And your name is Steven, that's a very good commentary to make. Now the method for making anagram, depends on how you want to approach it. You could just start with a piece of paper. And list the letters and start writing different words. Reordering the letters until you come up with a word. That works for you. That's an actual pronounceable word. There are also software programs or web based anagram generators. Where all you need to do, is type the letters into the field. And click a button and it will give you a list of potential anagrams. Or if you're using a word processing program. You can actually just type some, type the word in. And it makes it easier for you to rearrange it without listing by hand. You can just cut and paste the letters until you have come up with a word. That you might use. So those are some ideas about how to make an anagram out of a name.
