Anagrams – Famous names (Part 2)

Here are a few more people you know and what their scrambled names (anagram) comes out as.

             Monica Lewinsky = Nice, silky woman   

                (Not sure if Slick Willie came up with that one)

Anagram grid

I have a piece of paper on my office bulletin board with these anagram (anagramatical?) words on it.  Unfortunately, I do not remember where I got it. My memory seems to recall that it was back when I was doing some calligraphy, and I needed some phrases to put to ink.

I have been told the words are Latin, but have not verified this.

The beauty of this work is that the words read forward, backward, and both horizontally and vertically.  I think there are 16 different wordsin this matrix or grid.

Are there others like this?

Anagrams – Famous people

 Isn’t it funny how things work out in anagrams.  Take these famous people for example:

 Elvis  = lives

 Clint Eastwood  = Old West Action
Madam Curie  = Radium came
Jim Morrison  = Mr. Mojo risin’
(from the Doors song, “L.A. Woman”)

David Letterman  = Nerd amid late TV

Howard Stern  = Retard shown

Princess Diana  = end is a car spin
Do you have a favorite famous person anagram to share?
