Anagrams and Alter Egos

Hail O Wordsmith of Middenshire!

I received today such splendid anagrams of my name from the above gentleman. They are listed here as he wrote them:

Graph McKennan

Ken McPhragann

Prankman Cheng

The rather mysterious;

N. Phanckmanger

and a law enforcement officer;

PC Hank Germann.

What wonderful times I would have with these characters as alter egos! As Graph McKennan I would be a cult comic artist. I'd run a successful haulage company as Ken McPhragann's Wagons. The rather mysterious N. Phanckmanger would be a rich banker, and as PC Hank Germann I'd be able to read people's thoughts.

But best of all I'd like to be Prankman Cheng! What a transformation for mild-mannered me ...

Thank you!

Love the sound of all your alter egos Raph.
Yes. in answer to your question on my blog - I love Andy Goldsworthy's work. He used to live not so very far from here and there are one or two pieces of his work which are in some of the villages - I keep meaning to explore them. When I do I shall certainly put them on my blog. Have just added you to my blog list! I love your colourful blog - and in any case - I love giraffes!

Thank you Weaver! There will always be plenty of giraffes around here!

I look forward to seeing the Andy Goldsworthy items on your blog.

Hello Ralph and thanks again for paying me a visit yesterday.

You certainly create a colourful world and get up to some interesting activities.

Giraffes are beautiful, graceful creatures but, judging by Necky Becky, they can also be pretty hip too!

I look forward to the next instalment.

Hi Raph,

Thanks for visiting my blog which lead me back to your very weird and wonderful land. In answer to your question, no , sadly I haven't ever illustrated "Wind in the Willows".

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Thank you Derrick.

Necky Becky was pleased to be called 'hip'. She's asked me to tell you, "Just wait till you see my new music video!"

I prefer Vivaldi myself ...

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Hope you get to illustrate it one day, Acorn Moon.

Thanks for visiting, you're always welcome!

Anagrams always make me think of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City.
Always fun to play around with letters/names...

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I'm lucky to have had such an anagram expert as Chris Hale to think up these wonderful names, Lyn!
