From the Vault: What’s in a Name?

I’ve once again wasted away the day with Pendragon and television, so I’ll give you guys another taste of that which lurks within the vault. Today I bring you a short post on the various ways that the word ‘name’ can be anagrammatised, stemming from the question, “What’s in a name?” Let’s find out, shall we?
Original Title: What’s in a name?
What’s in a name?

Amen – The end of a prayer.

Mane – Ring of fur on the neck of a lion[or other such animal].

Mean – What one is trying to convey, or the opposite of kind.

E-Nam – A war fought in by every E-veteran worth his salt[Romans,salary, paid in salt. THE MORE YOU KNOW.] . Nowadays, all the n00bs just fight in E-Raq…

E-Man – Something you can’t call yourself unless you fought in E-Nam.

Mena – Swedish for ‘to mean or convey’. Also, a convenient misspelling or mean.

Nema – It’s an ‘urban-type settlement’ in Russia. Go figure.

N a m e – What you get when you read between the lines.

Name – a special version of name that only drunk people can see[slightly blatantly stolen from the webcomic Questionable Content…].

Mnea – Okay, now you’re just making things up!

So now you know, just what is in a name. Until next time,


Dude, you left out the word name itself…. Nice one. If you guys have anything else to say about what’s in a name, leave it in the comments. That’s all for now.
