Anagram is a good brain teaser and can boost our brain performance. Someone with a good command over a language can often make interesting anagrams.
Anagrams can be just new words / phrases from the subject or can be strongly/ slightly relevant with the subject. For example: ‘Note’ can be rearranged to ‘Tone’ but in this case, it’s simply a rearrangement. But the word ‘Dormitory’ can be rearranged to ‘Dirty Room’ and there is a relationship between these two words (at least to some people!). There are certain pleasures in solving anagrams and creating new ones. Psychologists often use anagram- oriented tests, known as “Anagram Solution Tasks”, to assess the implicit memory of young adults and adults. Solving anagrams or creating one requires a sound knowledge of the language as well as the merit.
I’m not going to bore you with the definition and history of the anagram. Presenting some interesting anagrams is my real intention here. Nonetheless, if you are interested in reading more about ‘anagram’ visit:
Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anagram for details.
Possible anagrams of your own name: http://www.anagramgenius.com/server.html
or got to http://wordsmith.org/anagram which are two best anagram servers you can find on the internet.

Use of Anagram:
Rearranging letter to make some other meaning or words is generally known as the anagram. The subject (original world/ letter) is used for a single time to recreate the other words. It is assumed that the use of anagram was initiated for sending secret messages or contents. Anagrams could be done in many ways including 'word to phrase', 'name to a phrase', 'word to word' etc.
How Anagrams can be helpful in practical world:
The Anagram is highly useful for people who are keen to use it with their activities. The common benefits of using anagrams are –
- Recreational activity
- For simple coding
- Making passwords
- Improves memory
- Provides security to confidential issues
- Making pseudo name
- Rearranging titles or headings uniquely.
