Anagrams result when the letters used to spell one word or phrase are rearranged to spell something else, without adding or subtracting any letters.
Sometimes, anagrams reveal strangely relevant combinations. In the case of shooting victim Trayvon Martin, one combination in particular sends a message identical to one that has been resonating all over the world since the tragic death of the Florida teenager and the non-arrest of shooter George Zimmerman became major news. Namely, that young Trayvon Martin will not have died in vain.
When the letters of Trayvon Martin’s name are rearranged, it sends a clear message:
TRAYVON MARTIN = VAIN MARTYR NOT
What this might mean to different people is an open question, but if anything good is to come of this senseless violence in Florida, then reflection on the circumstances and factors that played into his death would seem to be in order.
Some would call this a coincidence, and perhaps on one level, that is all it is. But when we take a cursory look at other names and anagrams they produce, it can cause one to stop and wonder.
Other notable anagrams of famous people include:
George Bush = He Bugs Gore
George Walker Bush = Beer keg lush go war
George W. Bush = He grows bogus
William Shakespeare = I’ll make a wise phrase
Chairman Mao = I am on a march
Clint Eastwood = Old West action

Curt Flood = Court fold
Margaret Thatcher = The Great Charmer
Milosevic = Cos I’m evil
Marilyn Manson = Manly man no sir
Albert Einstein = Ten elite brains
Babe Ruth = He rub bat
Walter Cronkite = Article network
Albert Schweitzer = Cerebral test whiz
Morgan Freeman = Manager for men
Princess Diana = End in a car spin AND ascend in Paris
Thomas Alva Edison = Aha ions made volts
Ronald Reagan = An oral danger
