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!

California octuplets: Noah, Maliyah, Isaiah, Nariyah…


“Octomom” Nadya Suleman, the mother of the octuplets (6 boys, 2 girls) born in California in January of 2009, has finally revealed the names the babies. Here they are, by order of birth:

  1. Noah
  2. Maliyah (girl)
  3. Isaiah
  4. Nariyah (girl)
  5. Jonah
  6. Makai
  7. Josiah
  8. Jeremiah

(In early reports, the girls’ names were misspelled Maliah and Nariah, and Makai’s name was misspelled McCai.)

Five of the above are biblical, while the other three have a sort of biblical styling to them.

The names of Nadya’s older six children (4 boys, 2 girls) are…

  • Elijah (born in 2001)
  • Amerah (2002)
  • Joshua (2003)
  • Aidan (2005)
  • Calyssa (2006, twin)
  • Caleb (2006, twin)
