Chapter 4. Twin Names that are Anagrams

For parents who seek similar - and symmetrical - names for their twins that are not cutesy or rhyming, anagrams are an intriguing choice. By definition, anagrams are words that have exactly the same letters, but in a different order. Consequently, they are always the same length - and often have a similar feel. As an added bonus, names that are anagrams are rarely trendy or popular, which gives them a certain cachet. If nothing else, the pairings in this chapter will open your mind to new ways of thinking about names - and to possibilities you might not have considered.
