Inconspicuous anagram baby names: Blake/Kaleb, Hale/Leah


I recently updated my old anagram baby names post to make it much more comprehensive. As I worked on it, though, I noticed that many of those sets of names had obvious similarities, such as the same first letters and/or the same rhythm.

So I thought I’d make a second, shorter list of anagram names that were less conspicuously similar. Specifically, I wanted the second list to feature sets of names with different first letters and different numbers of syllables.

And that’s what you’ll find below — pairs of anagram names that are relatively distinct from one another. So much so that, at first glance (or listen), some might not even strike you as being anagrammatic at all. :)

Most of the names above have a clear number of syllables, but a few do not. (I categorized them according to my own interpretation/accent.) So, if you’re interested in using any of these pairings, just remember to test the names out loud first!

Pop Culture Baby Name Game #1 Results

In Pop Culture Baby Name Game #1, the aim was to predict which pop culture-inspired names would debut on the SSA’s 2011 “long list.”

We got a handful right:

  • Bieber – nope
  • Cersei – nope
  • Daenerys – nope
  • Eames – yes, 5 baby boys. (Thanks, Julie!)
  • Lannister – nope
  • Gaga – nope
  • Jimmer – yes, 9 baby boys. (Thanks, Grace!)
  • Katniss – nope (Surprisingly! Just wait for 2012…)
  • Kreayshawn – nope
  • Lohan – nope
  • Occupy – nope
  • Potter – nope
  • Skrillex – nope
  • Taio – yes, 8 baby boys.
  • Tebow – nope (Also surprised about this one.)

I had to bump many of the suggestions over to Pop Culture Baby Name Game #2, as they didn’t qualify for this game (i.e. they had debuted on the list pre-2011).
