Name Anagrams & Lexigrams - prepare to be shocked!
What is an Anagram?
Name Anagrams. An Anagram is a word or phrase made by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase.
Here are some anagram examples;
ASTRONOMERS – MOON STARERS
CONVERSATION – VOICES RANT ON
THE EYES – THEY SEE
As you can see the anagram must contain only the exact same letters as the original word, and it uses ALL the letters of the original word.
So really it's a mind exercise in rearranging letters.
The Power of Lexigrams - a Variation of Anagrams
Did you know that you can go beyond name anagrams to reach the hidden messages in names and phrases? This is when it gets REALLY interesting!
The astrologer Linda Goodman named this name anagrams-type system LEXIGRAMS.
Here are 2 simple examples she gives us of Lexigrams:
The word UNIVERSE contains the following words:– SUN…VENUS…SEER…US
In THE GREAT PYRAMID you will find the phrase TIME HARMED THE EARTH and EARTH GRID.
Here are some place names and famous people’s names that I have lexigrammed.
I can honestly say I found it pretty mind-blowing when some of the lexigrams started to ‘appear’ as I’m sure you will see. What lexigrams do you find? (The rules for how to do lexigrams are at the bottom of this page).
STATUE OF LIBERTY
contains the following:
Say yes to a free life
USA is free for you
Fly to a free state
On the negative side, it also contains the words Traitor and Lie…
Real name Norma (as I’m sure you know, Marilyn’s real name was Norma Jean Baker!)
Norman Mailer (this is a strange one as Norman was Marilyn’s biographer)
Marry mean men
Torn, Strewn. Worst Sin in one town. It won’t rest. It is written in stone.
Dies in a car
(this one really spooked me)
ELVIS AARON PRESLEY
Sleep pills are a release…
Lives on as one son
A rich brand
The feet fly
(have you seen this man dance?!)
Fast feet at rest
(what a perfect description of tap dancing?)
Severe Test. No rest. Serene.
Man can pen a tune
(one of the greatest songwriters ever?)
A grid map. Mirage. Paradigm (the Oxford English Dictionary defines paradigm as "a pattern or model, an exemplar).
Die (the Pharoah was buried in the Pyramid along with his family)
Rules for Lexigrams
The ‘rules’ for creating Lexigrams are as follows. You cannot lexigram a name or phrase if all 5 vowels appear in it.
Also, no more than 15 different letters of the alphabet must be in the word or phrase you are lexigramming.
That’s simply because you could create almost any phrase from all the vowels and more than 15 different letters.
Each new word you create must only contain the exact letters from the original word or phrase. For instance, if you lexigram a phrase with only one M in it, each word you find within the original word can only contain one M. If the original word has 2 M’s then you can have 2 M’s in each new word you create.
Each person who lexigrams a word will come up with THEIR own creation. You may see something completely different to what your friend or partner sees. You can learn a lot about yourself from what you find.
You might find it very revealing to lexigram your own full name (or your first and last names), or your childrens' names or your partner’s.
