Namagrams - Forum members

Post by Philip Jarvis » Fri Apr 17, 2009 12:33 pm

Following the “Nanagrams” thread that I posted yesterday, I’ve had a bit of time to kill in between filling in job applications. On the same theme as yesterday, I thought it might be fun to see what anagrams could be conjured from the names of the members of this forum.

Where full names were available, I’ve tried to do anagrams of those members who have made at least 30 posts. In some cases, such as Charlie and Howard Somerset, there was a surfeit of good options (only one has been posted below for each person). In other cases, the combination of letters meant the choice was either limited or it wasn’t possible to post anything meaningful at all.

I hope you have fun in trying to find your own anagram or those of your fellow members. If you can’t find yourself, or don’t like the entry posted, don’t blame me – blame your parents!!

Have fun.

27 is a brilliant anagram. Particularly if she wanted to be a slightly niche prostitute.

21 - as seen on Stilgoe's Image signed card which sits atop a wardrobe in my house. Sorry, does that give it away a bit?

Re 50 - I'm not sure that HE will agree with that description. However, there may be some that are more appropriate. Following Clare Sudbery's description of her breasts leaking, hers may not be too far off the mark.

Also, I tried to make sure that I came up with a good one for Matt Morrison, since he's been so kind to me. Hope you like the description Matt.

p.s. Have you posted me the ticket for the final? It hasn't arrived in the post yet.

These are great Philip. I've resolved to get them all without looking at the member list/trawling the board for hints, and I've got 85 of the 88 so far :shock: (I clearly spend too much time on here)

I won't say which 3 I haven't got for fear of upsetting them, as they'll think I haven't noticed them as much as the others, which might not be true.

Cheers though, excellent way to spend a Friday post-pub afternoon in the office :)

That's amazing - let me know if you need any help on the other 3. You might want to spend Saturday afternoon trying the anagrams I posted on Thurs - unless you don't like football, pop or rock?

I'm fairly sure I could go through the member list to get the other three, but that'd spoil the fun. I'll get there in the end!

Yeah, I'll have a look at your football/music ones too. Maybe after I've done some work though...

Joseph - my profound apologies.

I really didn't want to say "O! Help ass job." However, how about these for alternatives:

HE SLOPS A JOB ....... No - that's probably not a good description of you .....

.... or if you fancy a pint at some time, how about trying:

ALE SHOP JOBS

Am I forgiven?

I found mine by doing ctrl+f and X, figuring that not many people would have an X! DO I get a prize for skilful cheating? Hehe. FYI, I prefer my signature nanagram, as I feel it describes me more! :D

So MAXED DATER, think about your CV - do you not think you would be able to demonstrate your willingness to go the extra mile with:

ADD EXTRA ME

Or alternatively, (since I spent 32 years collecting local taxation before being made redundant) would this not be a good thought to have:

ME DREAD TAX

I'm sure the majority of members of this forum would go along with the latter.

You don't need to apologise Philip :). I checked the anagram servant and it came up with 605 jumbles, so I knew that when you said

Thanks Jon - my eyes were obviously strained by the "battle" of reviewing so many names.

Now amended with new anagram and resorted alphabetically.

At a quiz last night, I had about 4 minutes to find an anagram of:
NIGEL FETCH AN IRON LEG, having been told that it was a famous persons name (forename and surname). It probably leaps out to some of you, but might challenge others. I'd thought I'd put in on the end of this topic instead of making a new one just for one anagram.

Nice work, Marc. I knew this person had to have a long name and surname but couldn't find it and gave up pretty quickly. Good find.
