Alter Ego

If ...when...I change the url of this blog I'm going to call myself Ashely Megral. Why? Because it's an anagram of my real name. If you'd like to create your own nom de plume, pop over to Jean Véronis' Technologies du Langage: Récré: Générez vos noms de plume. On second thoughts, maybe Hally Greesam is more me, or should that be less me? What about Sheryl Lagame then?

I am going to look into this of course. I remember spending a long time trying to find an equally funny phrase with my name as the one you posted .... I found plenty but all leaving out one or two letters.
Apropos leaving out letters, the fellow who translated Perec's massive La Disparition without one single letter 'e' also left out 'e' in the English translation, amazing.
According to one web site these are called lipograms from Greek lipogrammatos (missing a letter)
