Anagram facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

An anagram is a puzzle where the player has to move all the letters in a word to make a new word. An example would be The Morse Code and Here Comes Dots. Anagrams are often used in fiction when a character wants to use a different name. For example, the Harry Potter character named Tom Marvolo Riddle made an anagram based on his name, "I Am Lord Voldemort", and began calling himself "Lord Voldermort". And the pen name of Voltaire comes from "Aroueti". The word 'nag a ram' is actually an anagram of the word anagram. Common anagram examples are "dormitory"-dirty room, "listen"-silent, "astronomer"-moon starer, and "a decimal point"-I'm a dot in place.
