Create a Pen Name, Edward Gorey-Style

Edward Gorey, Blue Aspic
From The Blue Aspic by Edward Gorey (via)
In his later years, Edward Gorey — known for his eerie crosshatch drawings and stories — lived in Yarmouth, MA, which happens to be where I’m from. So the town and school libraries were always stocked with Gorey books, and I read those books over and over again growing up.

One interesting thing about Gorey is that he published under dozens of bizarre pen names, all of them anagrams of “Edward Gorey.” Here are some examples:

  • D. Awd­rey-Gore
  • Deary Rewdgo
  • Dewda Yorger
  • Dogear Wryde
  • E. G. Deadworry
  • Ogdred Weary
  • Raddory Gewe
  • Regera Dowdy
  • Waredo Dyrge

We’ve already come up with Ben Franklin-style pen names, so I thought it would be fun to try some Edward Gorey-style pen names this time around.

Here are a few anagrams for my name, Nancy Man:

  • Anna C. Nym
  • Ann McNay
  • Cam Nynan
  • Macy Nann
  • Myc Nanan
  • Myna Cann
  • N. N. Cayman
  • N. Y. MacNan
  • Yna McAnn

Can you come up with any Gorey-style pen names for your name?
