Anagrams

Anagrams are formed by rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to form a new word or words.

At Anagram type in your name and click "Get anagrams".

Pick 5 or more series of words. The first ones may all start with the same words so keep scrolling down until you get lists with a variety of words or words that intrigue you. (You'll probably see the same words popping up again and again but there will be some surprising combinations.

Set the timer for 10-15 minutes and write sentences the contain all the words on one line.

Using JOYCE FETTEROLL I get 4163. Using JOYCE ANN KURTAK FETTEROLL I get 43,480! (If you click on the "advanced" option you can tell it to include numbers before its lists if you're curious how many there are.) With the first nearly 30,000 that start with "A ACE" so I have to scroll way down to get to the next list. Here are some -- way more than 5! -- that came from my name:
