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!

Some of the names used just once last year include: Arslen, Bivoj, Cirilla, Dalibor Jan, Elayo, Fedderick, Gyozo, Horst, Inari, Janko, Kvído, Leen, Mio, Nemanja, Oktavián, Pankrác, Quido Adam, Rostislava, Sagvan, Torian, Ute, Velen Vítek, Wendelin, Xenie, Yazan, and Žasmina. (This is a mix of both boy and girl names.)

Gyozo means “conqueror” in Hungarian. It’s basically the Hungarian equivalent of Victor.
