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!

Where did the baby name Raymie come from in 1960?

The name Raymie first popped up in the U.S. baby name data in 1960:

  • 1962: 12 baby boys named Raymie
  • 1961: 21 baby boys (and 5 baby girls) named Raymie
  • 1960: 8 baby boys named Raymie [debut]
  • 1959: unlisted
  • 1958: unlisted

Where did it come from?

The sentimental movie Raymie (1960), which followed a young boy named Raymie Boston on his quest to catch “Old Moe,” a giant barracuda who tormented the local fishermen in Raymie’s Southern California town. When Raymie finally managed to land Old Moe, though, he had a change of heart about killing the fish…

Possibly the best-remembered thing about the movie is the theme song, “Raymie,” which was sung (surprisingly well!) by comedian Jerry Lewis.

Raymie Boston — whose first name was likely a nickname for Raymond — was played by David Ladd, the son of actor Alan Ladd (who played Choya in Branded and Jim Bowie in The Iron Mistress).
