Yay Wikipedia! I just learned a new word: Ananym. An ananym is a pseudonym made by spelling one's real name backwards. For example, Ted Geisel wrote some books not under the name "Dr. Seuss", but the name "Theo. LeSieg".

-- El Truty Knik

Hmm, Air A. Fen, probably not a good idea, Al Gore would arrest me for drying out valuable wetlands.

That sounds like an appropriately ogrish name for someone who wants to destroy our entire power grid. :)

Heh, I'll have to coin a new word: unananymable! "etoyocjt" doesn't work out to anything.

I like the sound of El Truty Knik... the "El" really helps sell the inversion.

I support your cause of working to increase public ananymity.

Yours kind of evokes "El Goonish Shive."

Hmm. "Relhctum Werdna" kinda suits you, too. And my real name backwards is the quite pronounceable yet comical Nehpets Greblig.

Funny... I was just reading something about how the name "Dr. Ivo Robotnik" is an ananym of "Ovi Kintobor", the character's actual name according to the Archie "Sonic the Hedgehog" comic series.

I swear, the only reason I read is because I was checking to see if Ivo was a legitimate nickname for Ivan (or Ivanov) and suffered Wikipedia drift.
